WHY LANDLORDS ARE OBLIGATED TO HAVE A CP12 CARRIED OUT
Landlords are obligated by UK law to have all gas appliances tested and certified prior to letting the property. It is the landlords responsibility to fully ensure their tenants are kept safe and are protected against gas related safety incidents.
Landlords must therefore ensure that all gas appliances are working correctly and safely.
A Gas Safe Registered engineer will fully check the boiler, gas appliances, the gas supply and flues. Should any of the gas checks not meet compliance, the engineer will advise of this. There is no obligation for the engineer to carry out any further work at the property in this instance.
Should all gas checks come back satisfactory, the gas engineer will issue you with a Landlord CP12 Gas Safety Certificate.
