It is a legal requirement for landlords to have all the gas appliances in a rented
property tested for safety every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
Our Gas Safe engineers are qualified to carry out gas safety inspections and issue
certificates. If the appliance requires repairs or servicing, this work can usually
be carried out during the same visit at a reduced cost.
Gas safety certificates cost £65 for up to two appliances. Certificates for additional
appliances are charged at £15 each.
Upon completion of all necessary safety checks you will be issued with a certificate.
This certificate will be proof that all appliances are safe to use. A copy will need
to be given to your tenant within 28 days of being issued and you will also need
to retain a copy for two years.
All safety inspections include:
Full system soundness test to confirm no gas leaks in property
Appliance check for gas soundness
Standing and working pressure check
Burner pressure/gas rate checked against manufacturer's data plate/manual
Flue flow test to ensure removal of products of combustion
Ensuring satisfactory operation of all flame failure devices
Checks for any installation defects that don't comply with current regulations
Investigation into any evidence of unsafe operation and report to the responsible
Failure to produce valid gas safety certificates (CP 12) can result in prosecution,
and can also nullify your property insurance, which in turn means you may be liable
for potentially expensive civil claims. The landlord is responsible for this aspect
of their tenants’ safety, and if non compliance were to lead to a death from carbon
monoxide poisoning the landlord could be charged with manslaughter.
If you are a landlord and have gas appliances that require gas safety certificates
call Phoenix Plumbing & Heating now for advice and information.
