All landlords have a duty of care towards their tenants to ensure that the property they rent is safe. Part of your obligations as a landlord or property manager is to ensure that all gas appliances conform with all current safety legislation and are certified by a qualified gas engineer. To make sure you are meeting your legal obligations, all gas appliances need to have a CP12 certificate.
What is a CP12?
This is an annual gas safety check that is carried out in accordance with Gas Safe regulations, and conducted by a qualified and certified Gas Safe engineer. It checks that all gas appliances, including gas central heating and plumbing, are operating safely. Once the checks have been carried out, your Gas Safe engineer can issue a CP12, so your tenants have complete peace of mind that you have fulfilled your landlords gas safety obligations and that all gas appliances are working properly.
At MG London our Gas Safe certified engineers can issue CP12 Gas Safe certificates to landlords and management agents and carry out annual inspections to ensure you stay on the right side of the law, and that your gas appliances are in good working order.
Our Gas Safe engineers can also carry out regular inspections for home owners. And while the CP12 certificate is not a legal requirement for property owners, if you are planning to sell your home then having your gas appliances checked and certified may help you to sell your property faster.
