If you’re a landlord, it’s now a legal requirement to have all gas appliances, pipework, chimneys and flues checked every year. This is to make sure the property you’re renting out is safe for your tenants. To prove that everything’s been checked and approved, you need to show a Gas Safe Certificate.
A Gas Safe Certificate is sometimes known by its previous name of CP12.
The only professional who can legally issue a Gas Safe Certificate is a Gas Safe Registered engineer. They’ll test the gas pressure, tightness, ventilation and flue flow amongst other things. Once they’re satisfied all your gas appliances are working perfectly, they’ll give you a report – which is the gas safety certificate. This is valid for 12 months.
