CP12 Gas safety certificates are a legal requirement for landlords in the UK. Ensure you are compliant by booking your regular landlord gas safety check.
The law currently states that all landlords must have a valid CP12 Gas Safety Certificate for any property they are renting out. UK landlords with gas appliances and fittings – including central heating, boilers and flues – must conduct an annual safety check conducted. This certificate must be issued by a Gas Safe approved engineer, and lasts for 12 months. At New Age Boiler Installations our team are all fully qualified and registered to issue landlord safety certificates.
In order to keep compliant as a landlord, you are responsible for the maintenance of the gas pipes, appliances and flues of all items that are part of the property. Services should be carried out in accordance with the appliances’ manuals or at least annually, and you should keep records of the services. A copy of the records also need to be given to your tenants. The checks carried out by a Gas Safe engineer must ensure that the appliances are working correctly, with no signs of faults. The inspection will also check that no dangerous fumes are escaping.
