Landlord Safety Certificates

In 1996 the government made law that all landlords who rent part, or all of a property, must have all gas appliances and pipe work checked and a certificate to prove it every 12 months.

If you are a landlord with your gas appliances unchecked, call today for your Landlords Gas Safety Certificate (CP 12).





What does a Landlord Gas Safety Inspection include?

I will check the following during a Landlord gas safety inspection:

  • Check appliance for gas tightness.
  • Check standing and working pressure if test points available.
  • Check burner pressure / gas rate against manufacturers data plate.
  • Check for satisfactory provision of all necessary ventilation.
  • Test flue flow to ensure removal of products of combustion.
  • Check satisfactory operation of all the flame failure devices.
  • Check for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets (where appropriate).
  • Investigate any evidence of unsafe operation and report to a responsible person. An appliance can not be deemed as having been checked, until the above has been completed.
  • For a Landlords Safety Record inspection a tightness test of the full system should be added to the above.
