Gas Safety Certificates for Landlords
If your a landlord renting out property then you should know it’s a legal requirement to obtain annual landlord gas safety certificates (CP12) for all gas appliances and flues used within your rented accommodation.
This certificate is awarded upon the successful completion of a gas safety check, to make sure gas fittings and appliances are safe to use by tenants, which can only be carried out by a registered Gas-Safe engineer.
Consequences of No Gas Safety Certificate
The consequences of not having gas safety checks and certificates are very serious as should non-compliance lead to death from carbon monoxide poisoning or due to unsafe gas appliance supply or gas leaks, the landlord could be charged with the criminal offence of manslaughter.
Also, failure to produce a valid certificate can result in the following:
- Invalidation of property insurance
- Liability for expensive claims
- Heavy fines
A copy of the gas safety certificate must be given to a tenant within 28 days of issue and the tenant should retain this for two years from the point of testing. This retention period will ensure compliance and proof of a landlord?s legal gas safety requirements.
Gas Safety Certificates for Homebuyers
Get peace of mind when selling or buying a home with a gas safety certificate.
IF YOU’RE A SELLER: A gas safety certificate removes doubt from potential purchasers to the suitability of the gas installation
IF YOU’RE A SURVEYOR OR CONVEYANCER: Your clients may need gas installations tested prior to purchasing a property
IF YOU’RE A BUYER: discover gas supply defects prior to purchase so you can obtain an estimated cost of boiler repair or new boiler installation (and perhaps get more leverage on negotiations)
Get peace of mind, knowing that a professional gas safety engineer has provided a thorough gas inspection.

What They Say
Tony also serviced and mended my old boiler (old in 1990) until parts were impossible to find, always fast, accurate, and successful in keeping it going until 2013. I was most impressed when he also rang the gas board because of poor pressure and made sure that they would come out ans fix things too (I got a new meter).
