Landlords have certain duties to take care of their tenants and ensure they have a home that is safe to live in. One of the things that landlords need to do is carry out regular gas safety checks if their property has a gas supply and gas appliances. All gas appliances need to be checked regularly, ideally once a year, to be sure they are safe and working properly. A certificate can then be produced as proof of the safety check, which can be provided to the tenant. When you need landlord certificates in Swindon, Warmshield Services Ltd will help you. Our Gas Safe registered engineers are qualified to carry out the necessary checks.
Gas Safety Certificates or CP12 certificates are useful not just for landlords, but also homeowners and estate agents. They are given by Gas Safe engineers, who can show that they are registered by showing you their official Gas Safe ID with their registration number. To produce a certificate for a property, the engineer must check the gas meter and any gas appliances and flues to ensure everything in the property is safe. If there are any problems, they will need to be fixed before a Gas Safety Certificate can be given.
Gas safety checks can be carried out 10 to 12 months after the last one without the expiry date of the previous check being affected. If the check is carried out less than 10 or more than 12 months from the last check, there will be a new expiry date. This will be 12 months after the latest safety check. It's up to landlords to make sure they carry out these checks and keep their tenants safe. Appliances owned by your tenants are not your responsibility, but you should have any connecting flues checked. You will receive a certificate from your engineer, and you also need to provide a record of the check to your tenants. You need to make sure you give a copy of your Gas Safety Record to your tenants within 28 days, by law.
