What is a gas safety certificate (CP12)?
A CP12 certificate is issued to prove that a landlord has met their legal obligation to have safety checks carried out on all of the gas equipment in their rented property, registered Gas Safe Engineers can do this directly from Powered Now. Gas Safety Certificates are a legal requirement in the UK.
If poorly installed and maintained, gas appliances can be dangerous, which is why it’s so important a qualified engineer checks them at least annually. Failing to get a CP12 certificate for your rented property could result in a hefty fine and up to 6 month’s jail time.
What does the check involve?
Gas safety checks should be carried out on any boilers, ovens, pipework, flues, chimneys and other fixtures and fittings that burn or exhaust gas. Using Powered Now a gas engineer will check:
- Appliances are working at the correct pressure
- Appliances are burning gas properly
- There's adequate air supply to appliances
- Flues and chimneys are clear so gases and fumes can be safely discharged
- Safety devices on appliances are working as they should
What does a Gas Safety Certificate say?
Once the inspection has been carried out, you can issue a CP12 certificate, which will contain the following information:
- Name, ID number and signature of the Gas Safe registered engineer
- Date of gas safety inspection
- Name and address of the landlord or letting agent (if it’s a managed property)
- Address of the property
- Location and info about each of the gas appliances and flues
- Any problems and the follow-up action required to resolve them
- Confirmation from the engineer that the check was completed properly, in compliance with legislation
- Date of the next scheduled gas safety check (usually 12 months from the date of issue)
