What Is a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate?

A landlord gas safety certificate, or CP12 is a certificate which is issued to a landlord (or their tenant or factor) to show that the property is gas safe and that all gas appliances, ovens, fires, cookers, boilers etc have been tested and comply with UK guidelines.

This certificate is legally required to allow a landlord to rent out this property and has to be renewed annually. Without this certifiate you cannot legally rent out the property.

It is the landlords legal responsibility to ensure that the gas safety inspection has been carried out and that a landlord gas safety certificate has been issued and is valid and current at all times.


Who Carries Out a Landlord Gas Safety Inspection

A landlord gas safety inspection can only be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. This proves that they are adequately qualified and accredited to allow them to be authorised to carry out a gas safety inspection.

At 1st Plumbers, all of our heating and boiler engineers are gas safe registered so you can be assured that you are being looked after by a professional and safe operative.

When Do I Need a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate?

As a landlord, you need a valid landlord gas safety certificate for all properties at all times. This means that you cannot rent out a property without a current up to date landlord gas safety certificate and this has to be renewed every year to ensure that the property is still safe and the certificate is still valid.

There is no grace period with a landlord gas safety certificate so your CP12 must be kept up to date at all times. Again, it is a landlords legal responsibility to ensure that their property is safe at all times.


What Is Covered With a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate

In order to receive a landlord gas safety certificate for any property, all of your gas appliances, gas ovens, gas fires, gas boilers, gas meter, gas pipes, chimney, flue etc need to be inspected.

Anything you have in the property which requires gas, must be inspected, tested and has to pass before a valid landlord gas safety certificate is issued.


Who Receives the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate

As it is the legal responsibility of the landlord to ensure that the property is safe and that a valid landlord gas safety certificate has been issued then they can specify who is to receive the certificate.

They can request that the certificate is issued to them, even if they do not live at the property or they can request that the certificate is issued to the tenant or factor.

However, in all circumstances a copy of the landlord gas safety certificate should still be presented to the tenant of the property within 28 days to let them know that the property is safe and all necessary checks have been carried out adequately.


What If The Landlord Gas Safety Inspections Fails?

If your property fails the landlord gas safety certificate inspection, then the property is not legally allowed to be rented out. If this is the case and you wish to continue renting out the property then all gas safe work must be carried out immediately and another gas safety inspection carried out to ensure that the property is safe.

If your property passes after the necessary work has been carried out then a valid landlord gas safety certificate can then be issued.


Can 1st Plumbers Help With the Landlord Gas Safety Inspection?

Our gas safe registered engineers are fully qualified and accredited to allow them to carry out all necessary gas safety inspections.

We also provide additional services for landlords to help them in keeping their landlord gas safety certificate up to date to ensure that all their properties are safe at all times.

As well as carrying out the gas safety inspections and issuing a landlord gas safety certificate, we are also able to provide annual reminder for each property to ensure that you do not forget the renewal date. We also offer landlord care plans specifically designed to meet the needs of landlords with multiple properties. This can include just the gas safety inspection and landlord gas safety certificate or can include all gas work, boiler service and boiler repairs. We can also include all electrical work.

Our team of gas safe registered engineer can also carry out any necessary work at the same time while on site to minimise interruption to your tenants and also reducing costs as it would all be included in one visit.

1st Plumbers work with landlords, factors and letting agents. For a fuller explanation of all of our services, please give us a call on (01355) 202656.


What if the Tenant Does Not Allow the Landlord Gas Safety Inspection?

The responsibility of the gas safety certificate inspection falls with the landlord. Therefore, it is the landlords duty to arrange entry to the property to allow the necessary checks to be carried out.

It is worthwhile reminding the tenant that not only is this a legal requirement but it is also in the best interests of the tenant for their health and safety to allow the landlord gas safety certificate inspection to be carried out.


What Does a Landlord Need?

  • Landlord’s Gas Safety certificate (CP12)
  • PAT Testing – Portable Appliance Testing
  • Legionella Certificate
  • EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report)
  • Carbon Monoxide Detectors 
  • Smoke and Heat Alarms

At 1st Plumbers, we can carry out all necessary tests for landlords, keeping them safe and legal at all times.

Happy Customers

Thank you guys for doing a great job. I was panicking so much when we came home to the flooding that I didn't know what to do. Your plumber, Martin was exceptionally helpful not only in stopping any further damage and preventing the water leak but he was also able to remove a lot of the water with some sort of re-direction of the pipe system. That's when we knew that we had a professional at hand. 

We can't thank you enough and my 6 year old son now wants to be a plumber too so that he can help other people. I'll let him know where to get his training!

Leanne McIntyre- St Leonards

1st Plumbers East Kilbride repaired our boiler a few years ago and have now serviced our boiler every year since. Glad to say that it is still going strong.

The heating engineers are very knowledgeable, polite and friendly so it's definitely not a chore to see them every year.
