Landlord Gas Safety

Gas inspection and safety checks(CP12's) and Landlords Responsibilities with regards to gas safety.

This page is dedicated to landlords, and contains important information with regards to your legal duties regarding gas appliance safety in the homes you let.

What are my main duties as a landlord?

To ensure gas fittings and flues are maintained in a safe condition.

Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If these are not available it is recommended that they are serviced annually unless advised otherwise by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer.

Ensure an annual safety check is carried out on each gas appliance/flue. Before any new lease starts, you must make sure that these checks have been carried out within one year before the start of the lease date, unless the appliances in the property have been installed for less than 12 months, in which case they should be checked within 12 months of their installation date.

Have all installation, maintenance and safety checks carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

Keep a record of each safety check for at least two years.

Issue a copy of the latest safety check record to existing tenants within 28 days of the check being completed, or to any new tenant before they move in.
