Gas Safety Certificates Issued
At R&B Plumbing and Heating, we are qualified to issue Gas Safety Certificates also known as Landlord Certificates and CP12s. They are required for any building or part of a building that has a gas appliance and is rented out permanently or for a short period. The certificate is legally required and it must be valid and current at all times. We can help you keep compliant with all the regulations and provide a certificate and Gas Safety Record for your tenants and management agency.
What is a Gas Safety Certificate?
A gas safety certificate is a formal document proving that all gas appliances in a property are safe to use and meet all the official requirements. They are issued by Gas Safe engineers who have the relevant qualifications to inspect gas boilers, gas fires, gas hobs and gas ovens. The certificates are legally required by anyone who owns and rents out a flat, house, bedsit, or HMO. Certificates are also required for B&Bs, holiday lets, guest houses, hotels, boarding schools, and hostels. An inspection must be carried out every 12 months and the findings recorded. The tenant of the property should be given a copy of the certificate as it is renewed or when they first move in.
The inspection takes less than an hour to complete. Each gas appliance will be checked thoroughly to make sure it is being used appropriately, is safely positioned and secured, is properly ventilated, and is completely safe. It is not the same as a service as the process simply covers the legal obligations.
For the landlord, a gas safety inspection proves that the gas appliances provided with the rented property are safe and appropriate to use. No one wants to be responsible for an accident, so the annual inspection will put a property owner’s mind at ease. It is an essential requirement for insurance claims too. If you would like us to issue a gas safety certificate for you, get in contact with us. We can complete the inspection at the same time as an annual service for ease and convenience.
