How Do You Get A Landlord Gas Safety Certificate?
Home Heating Systems work with a large number of local landlords in the Wirral and surrounding areas.
The law in the UK 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 Home Heating Systems, 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 needs 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.
What happens during a landlord gas safety certificate?
You can expect the following when a Gas Safe engineer arrives at your doorstep for a gas safety check:
Once their inspection is complete, the engineers will leave your property, and you will receive a Gas Safety Certificate & Record within 24 – 48 hours of the inspection.
