All rental properties are required by law to be issued with an annual Gas Safety Certificate.
Landlords across London have a legal obligation to check all gas appliances within a property using a Gas Safe Registered heating engineer.
This is to ensure the checks are carried out safely and all gas appliances are working properly and securely.
Once the certificate has been issued, it will detail the appliances that are deemed safe for use and that they meet official safety standards.
Essential information for landlords
Ensuring your property complies with gas safety regulations in the UK.
There are various gas safety certificates that can be issued, many of which are handed over when an appliance is installed.
However, enquiries involving a gas safety certificate will relate to a yearly check being carried out on your boiler or gas appliance. This is often referred to as a CP12 (Gas Safety Record).
- Gas meter
As property owners and landlords are legally required to undertake annual gas safety checks, they will need to provide the tenant with a copy of the current gas safety record for all their rental properties.
Annual boiler servicing and checks can only be carried out by a qualified and highly-trained Gas Safe registered engineer.
