what is a landlord

gas safety check?

A Landlords Gas Safety Inspection, also known as a Gas Safety Check or a CP12 certificate, is a legal requirement in the UK for landlords who rent out residential properties that have gas appliances installed. The purpose of this inspection is to ensure the safety of tenants by verifying that the gas appliances, flues, and related fittings in the property are working correctly and do not pose a risk of gas leaks or carbon monoxide poisoning.

During the inspection, a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer visits the property and examines all gas appliances, such as boilers, ovens, gas fires, and water heaters, to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently. The engineer checks for any faults, damage, or signs of carbon monoxide leakage. They also inspect the ventilation and make sure the flues are clear and functioning properly.

If the engineer identifies any issues or safety concerns, they will advise the landlord on the necessary repairs or maintenance required to rectify the problems. All this will be documented on the CP12 gas safety certificate. Depending on the severity of the issues found a warning notice may be issued and the faulty appliance turned off or disconnected from the gas supply. If this does happen we will provide the Landlord with a quote to rectify the problem/s.

The Gas Safety Certificate is an important document that confirms the safety of the gas appliances in the rental property. Landlords are legally obligated to keep a record of the inspection for at least two years. It is important for landlords to ensure these inspections are carried out annually or as required by local regulations to maintain the safety of their tenants and comply with the law.

Why should I have a Landlords safety inspection?

There are five important reasons why landlords should have a Landlords Gas Safety Inspection:

  • Legal requirement: In the United Kingdom, it is a legal requirement for landlords to conduct annual gas safety inspections in rental properties with gas appliances. Compliance with this requirement ensures that landlords fulfill their legal obligations and helps protect both tenants and landlords from potential hazards.
  • Tenant safety: The primary purpose of a gas safety inspection is to ensure the safety of tenants. Gas appliances that are not properly maintained or faulty can pose serious risks such as gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, fires, or explosions. By conducting regular inspections, landlords can identify and rectify any issues, minimizing the risk to their tenants’ health and well-being.
  • Legal liability: Landlords have a duty of care towards their tenants. If an accident or injury occurs due to a faulty gas appliance, and it is found that the landlord did not fulfill their responsibility to ensure gas safety, they may be held legally liable. Conducting regular gas safety inspections and obtaining the necessary certificates can help protect landlords from legal consequences in case of any unfortunate incidents.
  • Insurance requirements: Many insurance policies require landlords to have valid Gas Safety Certificates for their rental properties. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in insurance claims being rejected in the event of an incident related to gas appliances.
  • Peace of mind: By conducting regular gas safety inspections, landlords can have peace of mind knowing that the gas appliances in their rental properties are in good working condition and pose no risks to their tenants. It demonstrates a proactive approach to maintaining property standards and prioritizing tenant safety.

What happens During a

landlords safety inspection?

During a Landlords Gas Safety Inspection, our qualified Gas Safe registered engineer will visit your rental property to assess the safety of the gas appliances and related installations. Here’s what typically happens during the inspection:

  • Visual examination: The engineer will visually inspect all gas appliances in the property, including boilers, gas fires, ovens, water heaters, and any other relevant appliances. They will check for any visible signs of stability, damage, corrosion, or wear and tear that could affect the safety and proper functioning of the appliances.
  • Appliance testing: The engineer will conduct various tests on the gas appliances to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently. This may involve checking the gas pressure, burner functionality, ignition systems, and heat output, among other things. They may also measure the level of carbon monoxide emissions from the appliances to ensure they are within safe limits.
  • Flue and ventilation inspection: The engineer will inspect the flues and ventilation systems associated with the gas appliances. They will check for any blockages, leaks, or damage that could affect the proper removal of combustion gases.
  • Gas tightness test: A gas tightness test, also known as a gas soundness test, may be performed. This test checks for any gas leaks in the gas supply pipework or connections. The engineer will use specialized equipment to measure the integrity of the gas system and ensure there are no leaks.
  • Documentation and certification: The engineer will fill out a CP12 Gas Safety Certificate which will identify any issues with the appliance/s, the readings from the safety checks such as tightness test, burner pressure, gas rate, safety devices, emissions readings and more will be on the certificate. It is the responsibility of the landlord to keep this document safe for a minimum of 2 years and give a copy to the tenant if requested.
  • Advice and recommendations: If any faults, issues, or safety concerns are identified during the inspection, the engineer will provide advice and recommendations to the landlord. They may suggest repairs, maintenance, or further actions required to rectify the problems and ensure the safety of the gas appliances.
