We will carry out all necessary gas safety checks including pipework for gas tightness, required ventilation, flue flow testing, burner pressure, cooker stability brackets and appliance testing; once all required benchmarks have been passed we can issue the landlords CP12 certificate.
If you’re a private tenant and rent a property your landlord has a duty under the Gas Safety Regulations 1998 to arrange maintenance by a Gas Safe registered engineer for all pipework, appliances and flues that have been provided to you to use by your landlord. He should also arrange for –and keep a record of- annual gas safety checks which must be carried out every 12 months, again by a Gas Safe engineer. The Health and Safety Executive also strongly advise landlords to supply CO alarms.
