It has been a legal requirement since 1996 for a landlord to hold a CP12 Certificate or Gas Safety Certificate for any rented property that uses gas appliances.
The certificate must be renewed annually and it ensures that any gas appliance and flue in the property are operating safely and within current standards. It’s very important you keep accurate records on dates and certificates. At no point in a live tenancy should your CP12 Gas Safety certificate expire, even if it is booked in. Almost all UK landlords know these rules, so why are there so many problems?
It is such an important issue, with massive fines for any slip up and a responsibility for the lives of tenants too. Have a look at the list of common issues below, and importantly, just how Brilliant Landlords can help you with each point.
Using our Legal Helpdesk we will be able to determine your rights and how to go about ensuring that access is not denied for this essential service.
