Gas Safety Certificates, Landlord Gas Certificates, CP12, and Gas Certificate these are all names for a Gas safety certificate which is a certificate that is required by law to be held for all rental accommodation in the UK where there are gas appliances present.
A landlord has duties under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 to arrange maintenance by a Gas Safe Registered engineer for all pipe work, appliances and flues, which are owned by the landlord and have provided for a tenants use.
Landlords must also arrange for an annual gas safety check to be carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. They must keep a record of the safety check for 2 years and issue a copy to each existing tenant within 28 days of the check being completed and issue a copy to any new tenants before they move in.
If a landlord breaks the regulations they are putting lives at risk and breaking the law. Health and Safety Executive (HSE) gives gas safety a high priority and will take the appropriate action to ensure compliance with the regulations; this could result in a substantial fine and/or a custodial sentence.
HSE runs a free Gas Safety Advice Line offering advice on gas safety that is open 8am-8pm Monday- Friday and 10am-4pm on a Saturday. To contact the Gas Safety Advice Line freephone 0800 300 363
In addition to this, Gas Safe Register offer lots of advice and guidance to landlords
