Who needs a Domestic Gas Safety Certificate?
What is a Domestic Gas Safety Certificate – CP12?
The certificate includes information about the gas safety checks, the date they were performed, the results of the inspection, details of any defects found, and recommendations for any necessary repairs. The certificate also includes the name and registration number of the engineer who performed the safety checks.
Why do I need a Gas Safety Check?
Plus, The Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm Amendment Regulations 2022 require private rented properties to be outfitted with a smoke alarm on each floor level/storey as well as a carbon monoxide alarm for rooms that contain solid fuel appliances like wood burning stoves or coal fires. Not following these regulations could result in prosecution with a maximum fine of £5000.00!
What information is needed for a Domestic Gas Safety Certificate inspection?
Gas Safety Checks (CP12s) can usually be conducted 10-12 months after the previous certificate was issued – if there has been continuous occupation. To ensure that we conduct your new check before the old one expires, please let us know when your last inspection date was.
We may require access to disconnect certain gas supplies during the inspection; however, this is an uncommon occurrence and we will work with your tenant to find a suitable and convenient date should this be necessary.
What does the check involve?
To guarantee the functionality of every single safety device, they will conduct comprehensive tests for gas tightness. Additionally, your engineer will examine any flues or chimneys in the property to ensure that all fumes are ventilated properly. In case any malfunctions are discovered during the examination process, you will be immediately notified and appropriate measures taken accordingly.
Moreover, our highly educated expert engineers always take proactive steps to avoid misuse when it comes to gas devices.
