Do I need a CP12 Gas Safety Certificate?
If you rent out a property, or part of a property, and it has a gas supply, you are legally required to have a valid CP12 Gas Safety Certificate, commonly called a Landlord Certificate. To be valid, the certificate must be less than 12 months old and issued by a qualified Gas Safe engineer. You need to give the tenant a copy of the certificate and also let a managing agent have a copy if you use one.
Properties that require this certification include flats, houses, bungalows, HMOs, bedsits, AirBnBs, holiday lets, chalets, caravans, and student accommodation if someone else is living in them even for a short while. A certificate proves that the gas appliances in the property were safe to use at the time of the inspection so it protects both the landlord and the tenant. Responsible landlords don’t want to rent out a dangerous property – it just takes a simple, 40-minute safety inspection to keep everyone safe and reassured.
What do you check at a Landlords’ Certificate inspection?
The main reason for the check is for safety. A check is completed on all gas appliances to make sure there is no toxic gas leakage and there are no signs of dangerous wear and tear on the appliance. We also make sure that the appliance is being used appropriately, and that there is adequate ventilation. It is not complicated and doesn’t take very long.
We check the following gas-powered appliances:
- Cooker, hob, or oven
- Tumble dryer
