Landlords, letting agents, and property owners need a CP 12 or Gas Safety Certificate every 12 months to ensure the safe and efficient operation of all heat producing gas products in their establishment.
If you own or manage a residential property, the certificate is a requirement by the UK Government. This document will also be provided when a Gas Safe registered engineer installs a gas appliance in your building. This essentially informs the Local Authority that your new product is good to go. Prop Cert’s gas engineers are well trained and qualified to work on different properties and an assortment of gas appliances from various manufacturers. Book our services today.
A qualified gas engineer is on the Gas Safe register. When they make their inspections, they check the following:
The Health and Safety Executive states that a residential property’s permanent and portable gas appliances and flues should be checked annually. Although this does not mean that landlords have the responsibility to have their tenants’ gas appliances checked, the pipes and flues these products are connected to must be inspected and cleared.
Once the inspection has finished, the Gas Safety Certificate should contain the following information:
Examples of Code C1 include exposed live wires that are accessible to human touch and conductive parts that have become exposed.
Examples of Code C2 include the absence or a reliable earthing, and when a metallic pipe is used for flammable liquids like gases.
Examples of Code C3 include the absence of a \'Safety Electrical Connection - Do Not Remove\' sign, and socket outlets mounted incorrectly.
