Gas Certificates and Safety Checks

According to the law, all property owners should get their gas appliances checked every year by Gas Safe Registered engineers to ensure their safety. After inspection, the certified engineers provide property owners with a certificate called a Gas Safety Certificate or CP12. Here is a brief guide on the Gas Safety Certificate and who needs them:

A CP12 Gas Certificate has a 12-month lifespan and needs to be renewed every year.

For a landlord

Under the Gas Safety Regulations 1998, you need a Gas Safety Certificate or CP12 if you are renting a property out. All landlords MUST have a Gas Safety Certificate, by law.

A CP12 Gas Certificate has a 12-month lifespan and needs to be renewed every year.

For a tenant

If you are a tenant, you must obtain a copy of the Gas Safety Certificate from your landlord. The landlord of a property needs to provide the tenant with a copy of the certificate within 28 days of the Gas Safety checks. When moving into a property, ask your landlord for a Gas Safety Certificate before moving in.

The cost of a Gas Safety Certificate varies; it depends on the size and type of property.
