Landlord Gas Safety

Landlord Gas Safety Records (CP12) North East

Landlords have a duty of care to their tenants to make sure the property is safe, as such, Landlord Gas Safety checks are a legal requirement in the UK. This means that a Gas Safe Registered engineer must carry out an annual check on all gas appliances.

Landlord Gas Safety – Responsibility

The Gas Safe Register outlines landlord duties and responsibilities.

In summary it is to ensure that all gas appliances, flues and ventilation are safe for appliances including:

  • Boilers
  • Fires
  • Cookers and hobs

Gas Safety Checks

The gas safety check will cover all the gas appliances and flues in the property.

It can be carried out any time from between 10 and 12 months from the previous check without affecting the original expiry date.  The new inspection date must not be greater than 12 months.

As a landlord you are not responsible for your tenants appliances. However, it is still up to you to ensure that the connecting flues have been checked.

Gas Safety Record

Once the safety check has been completed you will receive a Gas Safety Record also known as a CP12. This will detail all of the checks that have been carried out.

Knowledge for Tenants

We recommend that you ensure that your tenants know where the gas supply is and how to turn it off in case of an emergency. Also, ensure they know what to do in case of an emergency and who they should contact.
