​Domestic Annual ​Gas Safety Inspections

​​Landlords gas safety inspections by an experienced Gas Safe registered engineer

​If you rent a domestic property, ​such as a private dwelling, holiday let or even AirBnB, you must have all gas appliances inspected every year.

Why do you need an annual inspection?

​The Gas Safe Register have a good explanation of what, as a landlord, your legal requirements ​as detailed in the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, and can be viewed here - Gas Safe Information for Landlords.

But basically it is your responsibility to ensure that your tennants are "safe in the property you are letting" and that an inspection is completed every 12 months.

  1. You need to arrange for a inspection of all gas appliances every 12 months and have a valid CP12 (the form completed by a Gas Safe registered engineer during the inspection visit).
  2. You need to provide a copy of the CP12 form to you tennants.
  3. The inspections should be carried out ​within 12 months of the previous check as the certificate lasts for for 12 months from the date of completion.

What happens during an inspection?

Our engineer will visit your rented property and carry out an inspection on each appliance to confirm they are operating correctly and within safety guidlines by following the four primary checks:

  1. Ventilation passages are not blocked and are in fully working order.
  2. The safety devices are operating efficiently.
  3. The appliance is burning at the correct operating pressure.
  4. Harmful gases are transferring cleanly outside of the home.

Every gas appliances needs to be checked including boilers, ovens, hobs, water heaters and gas fires.

At the end of the visit they will issue a Gas Safety Certificate (CP12) which lists all the appliances and their status.

Please note - A safety inspection is not a replacment for a boiler or system service.

What confirmation of the ​visit and inspection do you get?

At the end of the visit the engineer will ask you or you tennant (whoever is in the property during the visit) to sign their inspection sheet which lists all the gas appliances in the property and their status.

They will then also sign and date the sheet.

You will receive two copies of the completed form (CP12) either at the end of the visit or by post, one for you and one for your tennant.

Note - You must provide your tennant with a copy with 28 days of the inspection date and keep a copy of the certificate for 2 years.

What happens if any appliances fails the inspection?

If any appliance fails any of the tests, the issue will be highlighted on the report and explained to you so you can arrange the appropriate action to fix the issue.

As Gas Safe engineers, we can fix any problems that may be found, during the same visit if possible, or advise on what actions need to be taken.
