Landlord Gas Safety Certificate (CP12)

Our Guide for Landlords, Tenants and Letting Agents about the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate (CP12)

Landlord Gas Safety Certificate Glasgow – (CP12)

The Landlord Gas Safety Certificate (CP12) is essentially a Certificate which is issued after a property has a Gas Safety Inspection to indicate that the property is safe. As a Landlord, it is your legal responsibility to ensure the safety of your property and the tenants who live there. A Gas Safety Inspection is only one aspect of the overall safety of your property and its tenants but its a very important one.

 

 

Why Do I Need A Landlord Gas Safety Certificate?

As a Landlord you are legally responsible for the safety of your property and the tenants who live there. 

A Landlord Gas Safety Certificate MUST be carried out annually in order for the premises to be deemed Gas Safe. Without this, your property CANNOT be Let Out. 

There is NO GRACE PERIOD with a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate so if it is not issued then your property is not safe to Let Out and your are legally not allowed tenants in the property until the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate is issued. 

 

What Is Included in the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate?

In short, whatever Gas Appliances you have in your property can be inspected for Gas Safety. This includes the Gas Meter, Gas Piping, Gas Boiler and Flue, Gas Fire, Gas Oven, Gas Cooker, Gas Hobs, Gas Burners and Gas Heaters. 

All Gas can be checked for safety when issuing a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate. 

 

When Do I Need To Get a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate?

If you are registered as a landlord and have at least one property with at least one tenant then you are legally responsible and should have a CP12 – Landlord Gas Safety Certificate to show that the property is Gas Safe.

You then have to get your Landlord Gas Safety Certificate renewed annually to ensure that the property remains Gas Safe each year to remain legally entitled to Let Out your property to any tenants.

If you have multiple properties then you need to have a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate for each one and again you will have to renew this each year for each property. 

 

 

What Gets Tested In A Landlord Gas Safety Certificate?

  • The Gas Meter and Gas Pipes Are Tested for Gas Leaks.
  • Check Appliances For Gas Tightness
  • Carbon Monoxide Tests
  • Burner Pressure and Gas Pressure Measured.
  • Checks On All Tested Appliances To Enure Safe Operability.
  • Check Safety Devices Are All Operational
  • Test The Chimney For Blockages
  • Test The Flue For Blockages
  • Ensure There Is Suitable Ventilation For Gas Appliances

 

 

What If The Landlord Gas Safety Certificate Is Not Issued?

If your property complies with all Gas Safety Standards and is deemed safe then a  Landlord Gas Safety Certificate will be issued right away by the Gas Safe Registered Engineer. 

However, if you Gas Safety Inspections reports that any aspect of your property is not Gas Safe then the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate will not be issued and you will have to resolve the safety issues whatever they may be before a valid  Landlord Gas Safety Certificate can be issued. 

If you are a landlord living at another address, this certificate can be sent to you or may be dealt with through your Letting Agent if you requested that.

 

 

What If The Tenant Doesn’t Allow Access For The Gas Safety Inspection To Be Carried Out?

It is the legal responsibility of the Landlord to ensure that there is a valid Landlord Gas Safety Certificate issued every year. Without this, the property CANNOT be Let Out.

It is in the tenants best interests to have this Gas Safety Inspection carried out as it is intended for their safety. Therefore the Gas Safe Registered Engineer must be able to gain entry to the property in order to carry out the Gas Safety Inspection every year. New regulations allow the Gas Safety Inspection to be carried out up to 2 months prior to the expiry date of the last Landlord Gas Safety Certificate.

 

Who Gets The Landlord Gas Safety Certificate – The Tenant Or The Landlord?

The Landlord is ultimately responsible for the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate and as such can authorise this to go to whoever they want.

Often a copy of the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate is left with the tenant. However, if the Landlord specifivally requests that the only copy should go to them then they still have to present a copy to the tenant within 28 days of the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate being issued.

Is There Anything Else That The Tenant Needs To Be Provided With?

As laws change over time and there are different laws in England, Wales and Ireland as ther is in Scotland it is best to check with the various Goverment bodies to check what the updated regulations and requirements are.

For Example, a Landlord must provide a Carbon Monoxide Detector for each new tenancy of any “Living Accomodation” where solid fuel is used. This would mean any room with a Gas Fire, Wood Burner, Log Burner or an Open Fire.
