    Although if it's a free standing cooker you can just disconnect it yourself. If it has a rubber hose on it then the fitting is a bayonet connection like a light bulb and it seals the gas supply as soon as it's disconnected. If it's a built in oven or hob it's a different story of course.

    It's free standing. I will get my dad to have a look but want to make sure it's done properly as giving the flat back to the council and don't want charged for making a mistake.

    As long as the oven slides out far enough to get access to the fitting it's an easy thing to do. Push up, turn and it comes off. I could be wrong but I'm fairly certain it's designed to be disconnected safely by the homeowner/tenant.

    Even if it's a bayonet fitting, there may also be an isolating valve just before the connection.
    Just to qualify, I'm not a gas engineer, but when I've removed cookers like above I turn the burners on first then turn the valve off before disconnecting, this ensures most of the gas in the pipe/cooker is burned off. Not doing so may mean a little gas being released in to the kitchen.

    That's definitely better advice than mine safety wise
