Welcome to Our Comprehensive Guide to CP12 Landlord Gas Safety Certificates
As a landlord, one of your primary responsibilities is to ensure that your rental property is safe for your tenants to live in. This includes making sure that all gas appliances are safe and functioning properly. To do this, you need a CP12 Gas Safety Certificate. In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about gas safety certificates for landlords and tenants, including what they are, what’s included in a gas safety inspection, what happens if you fail a gas safety certificate, how long it takes, how much it costs, and how to book a gas safety certificate and a boiler service together.
What is a CP12 Landlord Gas Safety Certificate?
A CP12 Landlord Gas Safety Certificate is a legal requirement for landlords who rent out properties that have gas appliances. It’s also known as a gas safety certificate, gas safety record, or CP12 certificate. The certificate ensures that all gas appliances in the rental property are safe and comply with current gas safety regulations.
What’s Included in a Gas Safety Inspection?
During a gas safety inspection, a qualified and registered Gas Safe engineer will check all gas appliances in the rental property, including boilers, cookers, and gas fires. They will also check the gas pipework and flues to ensure they are safe and functioning properly. If any issues are found during the inspection, the engineer will provide advice on what repairs or replacements are needed.
What Happens if You Fail a Gas Safety Certificate?
If any gas safety issues are identified during the inspection, the engineer will provide advice on what repairs or replacements are needed. If the issues are not fixed, the engineer will not be able to issue a CP12 certificate. As a landlord, it’s your responsibility to ensure that all issues are resolved before the next inspection.
How Long Does a Gas Safety Check Take?
The length of time it takes to complete a gas safety check depends on the size of the property and the number of gas appliances. Generally, a gas safety check should take around 30 minutes to an hour. However, if any issues are identified during the inspection, it may take longer to complete the necessary repairs or replacements.
How Much Does it Cost?
The cost of a gas safety check and CP12 certificate can vary depending on the location of the property and the number of gas appliances. On average, the cost can range from £100.

During a boiler service, a qualified engineer will inspect and clean the boiler to ensure that it’s safe and functioning efficiently. They will also provide advice on any repairs or replacements that are needed. By booking both services together, you can save time and money.
