Gas Safety Certificates (CP12)

A landlord’s gas safety certificate is required by law for all rental properties in the UK.

As a landlord you are legally required to arrange for an annual gas safety check to be carried out on every gas appliance and flue provided with each rental property.

Checks must be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer who is competent and qualified to work safely and legally with gas.

The landlord gas safety check will make sure gas fittings and appliances are safe to use.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Gas Safety Certificate?

    A Gas Safety Certificate is a document, mainly intended for Landlords, to ensure that gas appliances provided for tenants in any rented residential accommodation are safe. The certificate is also called a CP12.

    As a landlord it’s your legal duty to have annual safety checks carried out on the gas appliances you provide for your tenants. Left unchecked, gas appliances, flues and pipework in your rental property pose a risk of gas leaks, fires, explosions and also carbon monoxide poisoning.

    It’s important legislation put in place to protect tenants and keep them safe. You might know that the property is safe but unless you have a record of the appliances, pipework and flues being checked by a gas safe registered engineer you are actually breaking the law.

  • How much does a Gas Safety Certificate Cost?

    When you use us for your annual Gas Safety checks you’ll never have to remember to book the following year because we’ll call you to remind you when it’s coming up for renewal. Plus, if you book now, you can take advantage of a 10% reduction the following year.

  • When do you need a Gas Safety Certificate?

    The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that a Gas Safety Certificate must be issues every 12 months.

    If you are letting a property it’s important to get all the gas appliances checked before the new tenants move in. The previous tenant may have damaged existing gas appliances or left un-capped gas pipes during their tenancy.

    Landlords must provide any new tenant with a current gas safety check record at the start of their tenancy. For existing tenants you must provide within 28 days of the check being carried out.

    As part of our Gas Safety service we’ll even call your tenants, or your letting agent, and can liaise directly with them to arrange a convenient time to visit. There;s no additional charges for picking up keys and dropping them off and we are very discrete. We’ll never disclose the outcome of the check to your tenants.

  • Who can issue a Gas Safety Certificate?

    By law, a Gas Safe registered engineer must perform the necessary checks to issue a Gas Safety Certificate. This is an important step to ensuring the safety of your tenants.

    At Palace Plumbers we only employ heating engineers that are on the Gas Safe Register (formerly CORGI) providing peace of mind in our competency to work safely on all your gas appliances and carry out gas safety checks.
