Landlord gas safety certificates (CP12)
In 1996 the government passed a new law that all landlords who rent out property, must have all gas appliances and pipe work checked annually (every 12 months) and must have a certificate to prove it. this is called a landlords gas safety certificate (CP12). You must obtain this from a Gas Safe registered engineer.
What you'll get with a gas safety certificate:
- Your gas appliances will be checked for gas tightness
- If test points available, standing and working pressure will be tested
- Burner pressure and gas rate against the manufactures data plate will be checked
- Checks will be carried out for the provision of all necessary ventilation
- Flue flow will be tested to make sure products of combustion are removed
- All flame failure devices will be checked for satisfactory operation
- Where appropriate checks will be made for physical stability, pressure and effectiveness of stability brackets
- Investigations for any evidence of unsafe operation will be made and repaired
Without completing all of the above checks an appliance can not be issued a gas safety certificate.
Discounts available for group bookings. We will also notify you in 12 months time when you will be required to perform an inspection at no extra cost.
