Gas Safety Certificate for Landlords (CP12), Ealing, Uxbridge, & London
If you are a landlord, then gas safety isn't just a high-priority, but essential. Gas is excellent; it can help heat homes at a relatively low cost, and gas boilers are still among the most common. But gas can be dangerous in the wrong, inexperienced, hands.
As a landlord, you have a legal requirement and obligation to your tenants that your gas boiler is safe and working correctly.
Get in touch today, and our experienced heating engineers are ready to help you. Our qualified and friendly plumbers cover London and are on-call for boiler breakdowns and any services 24/7.
Yes - 24 hours! Our engineers can perform all relevant checks at a time that best suits you.
Gas Safety Record or CP12?
The CP12 was the original name for the Landlord gas safety certificate and stood for CORGI Proforma 12. But when the Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain in 2009, the CP12 became the Gas Safety Certificate.
All you need to know is that one is required by law if you are renting out accommodation to a tenant. And it would be best if you used trusted, qualified tradespeople that are affordable, and available 24 hours a day (That's us by the way).
Don't forget that it isn't a legal requirement for an engineer to supply a Gas Safety Record document to you unless you're a landlord. So make sure you tell us that you are when you get in contact.
Why do I need a Landlord Gas Safety Record?
Why are the rules different for a landlord? Well, quite simply, a Landlord has a legal duty to the tenants, to make sure the property is safe, and the gas safety record is part of that process.
That means the gas safety certificate is a requirement by law. You can read more here: Gas Safe Register
Your gas safety record should provide:
- A description and location of each checked appliance or flue
- The name, registration number and signature of the engineer who made the checks
- The date of the inspections
- The address of the property being inspected
- Your name and address (or an agent's where applicable)
- Information on any safety defects and actions needed or taken to fix them
- The results of all operational safety checks carried out on the appliances
Do I need a Gas Saftey Certificate?
If you are a Landlord who is renting out accommodation then yes, you must have a Gas Safety Certificate, as it is a legal document.
How long does a Gas Safety Record last?
The certificate is valid for 12 months, and you will need to schedule the inspection annually.
