GAS SAFETY CERTIFICATE
Landlord’s are legally required to hold and provide a valid gas safety certificate for all gas appliances within their rented property.
This certificate, also known as a cp12 certificate, show that gas appliances, such as boilers, flues, fires and hobs within a property are in good safe working order. Gas safety certificates must be renewed every 12 months.
Faulty gas appliances can be dangerous, faults could lead to an appliance leaking toxic chemicals such as carbon monoxide, gas leaks, or even fires. It is therefore essential that Landlords uphold their legal obligation and keep their gas safety certification up to date.
Remember; A copy of the certificate must be issued to the Tenants within 28 days of the check being carried out.
What is included?
During a gas safety check, our registered Gas Safe engineer will inspect your gas appliances and make sure that they are safe and are in good working order.
The engineer will check associated pipework, flues, ignitions and connecting points. Any faults and/or apparent signs of damage will be looked for. Should any concerns be raised the engineer will make recommendations for action to be taken to make the appliance safe.
Once the appliances are deemed safe, the Gas Safety Certificate will be issued. This document includes the following information:
The name of each appliance tested
The result of the safety check for each appliance
Any safety issues found
Any action or remedial work recommended
Letting a property without a valid gas safety certificate is illegal, and can result in a fine and even imprisonment.
