Landlord Gas Safety Certificate Carried Out In Your Area
Landlords are required by law to have an annual gas safety check carried out on their properties. The check has to be carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe Registered plumber under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
This will ensure that all gas fittings and appliances (such as cookers, boilers and any other gas appliance) are safe to use.
Our plumbers are Gas Safe Registered engineers - we can carry out these checks and provide you with a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate (CP12).
The following will be checked during our inspection:
Check for gas leaks
Ensure gas pressures are correct
Check the flues for damage or signs of distress
Make sure appliances are fitted to manufactures instructions
Check earth binding to gas meter
Check gas pipe has been sleeved passing through any walls
all gas pipe work,
appliances which you own and have provided for tenants use
And much more!
At the end of our inspection you will be provided with a full inspection report valid for one year.
We can also service and repair all your gas appliances during the same visit.
These checks need to cover the following ””.
The gas safety certificate may also be referred to as a landlord gas safety record or CP12 form.
Extra Safety For Tenants and Carbon Monoxide Alarms
For more information on Gas Safety information for landlords visit the Health and Safety Executive.
The Health And Safety Executive (HSE) strongly recommends the use of carbon monoxide alarms as a helpful precaution to give tenants advance warning of this potentially harmful gas in the property.
Please note that these alarms should not be seen as a replacement for regular maintenance and safety checks by a Gas Safe registered engineer but as an extra.
Special Note – The Law Has Changed and a new law came into being in January 2013.
This refers to boiler flues that are in voids with no inspection hatches.
The Gas Safe Register states that, inspection hatches will need to be fitted for boiler flues running in boxed-in voids or between floors and ceilings, and will need an inspection hatch within 1.5m (5ft) of any concealed joint in a flue system by 31st December 2012.
