Get certified today... (Be Safe!)

In 1996 the Government made law that all landlords who rent part, or all of a property, must have all gas appliances and pipe work checked and a certificate to prove it every 12 months.

If you are a landlord with your gas appliances unchecked, call us today for your Landlords Gas Safety Certificate (CP 12).

A Mikeys Plumbing Capita registered engineer will check the following during a Landlord gas safety inspection:

  • Check appliance for gas tightness.
  • Check standing and working pressure if test points available.
  • Check burner pressure / gas rate against manufacturers data plate.
  • Check for satisfactory provision of all necessary ventilation.
  • Test flue flow to ensure removal of products of combustion.
  • Check satisfactory operation of all the flame failure devices.
  • Check for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets (where appropriate).
  • Investigate any evidence of unsafe operation and report to a responsible person. An appliance can not be deemed as having been checked, until the above has been completed.
  • For a Landlords Safety Record inspection a tightness test of the full system should be added to the above.

Landlords or their agents have a statutory duty to:

  • Ensure that fittings and flues are maintained in a safe condition. This means that you should have gas installations and appliances serviced regularly and keep a record of the service.
  • Have a safety check carried out on all gas appliances and flues annually or within 12 months before the start of a new tenancy.
  • Check gas installations and appliances immediately before the start of any new tenancy, even if the gas safety certificate is still current.
  • Have all installation, maintenance and safety checks carried out by a qualified Capita registered engineer only.
  • Keep a record of each safety check for 2 years – the Capita installer will issue this.
  • Give a copy of the Capita installer’s safety check report to each current tenant within 28 days of the safety check, or to new tenants before occupation.

The statutory regulations are: Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. These regulations are enforced by the Health and Safety Executive.

What your property should have:

  • Safe, well maintained gas installations and appliances
  • A current Landlord Gas Test Safety Certificate.
  • A record of regular appliance servicing
