Comprehensive Guide on Gas Safety Certificate

Gas Safety Certificate is one of a landlord's most significant compliance requirements. Continiue reading and learn how to find an experienced Gas Assessor through MyConstructor.

What is a Gas Safety Certificate?

A Gas Safety Certificate is a document that describes how safe the gas appliances of your property are. Nowadays, landlords are obligated by the UK law to provide this certificate.

Failure to comply with fundamental safety rules can result in significant penalties such as large fines, potential criminal charges, and, in extreme situations, the risk of serious harm or death to renters.

All landlords or managing agents are expected to submit annualy gas safety certificates to tenants, stating that all appliances and related pipes and installations in the property are fit for purpose to guarantee that all homes are kept to the highest gas safety level.

As a landlord, you must obtain a landlord Gas Safety Certificate check, also known as a CP12, for each gas appliance in your rental property. It's a legal requirement, and each landlord gas safety certificate must be renewed each year. You risk a hefty fine if you don't have them, and the appliances may be unsafe for tenants to use.

What is the meaning of a Gas Safety Certificate?

A Gas Safety Certificate is a record of a safety inspection that landlords are required by law to acquire and present to renters under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. The gas safety certificate demands yearly inspections of all gas appliances, gas piping, flues, and other similar items on your premises, as well as documented findings of all examinations.

The Gas Safety Certificate must include a list of any safety concerns that were discovered and any corrective action that was necessary as a consequence.

Details that Gas Certificate includes as follows:
  • The inspection date.
  • Property address.
  • Landlords full name.
  • Engineer's name and signature.

Should I hire a professional?

If you hire a professional to conduct the inspection of your gas appliances of your property, you can rest assured that your tenants' life and also yours are completely safe.

How can I obtain a Gas Safety Certificate?

To obtain a gas safety certificate, the only thing you need to do is make an appointment with a properly Certified Engineer listed on the Gas Safe Register, the UK's only recognised gas registration authority.

Gas Safe engineers should have a valid ID card on hand to demonstrate their qualifications. Only registered gas engineers and firms authorised by the GSR can legally work on gas appliances and installations.

After the expert has completed the inspection, which includes a visual inspection of all accessible pipes and gas appliances and a gas leak check, you will be given a CP12 certificate.

What are the Landlord's Legal Responsibilities?

Landlords must ensure that all gas equipment on the property has been properly installed and inspected by a Safe Gas engineer.

Landlords are also obligated by law to organise yearly gas safety checks for each appliance and flue in the property and furnish renters with a record of the gas safety check within 28 days after the check or before new tenants move in (in writing or electronically). Landlords are responsible for continually repairing any gas connections or flues in the property to guarantee their safety.

Landlords must also preserve records of gas safety checks until two more tests are done. Records may be stored for longer than two years in some cases.

When should I schedule a Gas Safety Inspection?

Gas safety inspections are needed once a year for each appliance/flue on the property. The most recent gas safety inspection must have been performed within one year of the new lease start date before the commencement of a new tenancy.

Annual gas checks can be performed 10 to 12 months after the last check.

What is the cost of a Gas Safety Certificate?

The typical cost of a landlord gas safety certificate in the UK is between £35 and £150. The gas safety certificate costs between £35 and £80 for smaller residences, while a bigger property examination with more appliances costs between £120 and £150.

The price of the Gas Safety ispection is not standard and depends on a different number of factors. Some of them are as follows:
  • The number of appliances that need to be checked.
  • What is the location of your property.
  • Who will carry out the inspection.
  • What is the dinstance the professional has to cover so he can come to your property.
  • How easy is to access the gas appliances of your property.

What if my property fails a Gas Safety Inspection?

If your property fails the gas safety inspection, specific issue areas will be mentioned in the report, as well as the necessary. Landlords must fix the problems as quickly as feasible. Defects in gas and heating systems are major problems that must be addressed promptly. Inquire with your Safe Gas engineer about any parts of the report that are unclear to you and what you should do next.

In rare circumstances, the engineer may remedy the problem while still on the job (at an extra cost and with your approval). However, if particular components must be obtained or extensive labour is necessary, the problem will take longer to resolve. In any event, preserve documents indicating that you are taking all reasonable measures to remedy the situation as quickly as feasible.

What are the Consequences of Noncompliance?

Noncompliance is punishable by limitless penalties or six months in jail. The typical fine is roughly £6,000. In some situations, the dangerous condition caused by noncompliance may result in enforcement actions, including local government-sanctioned immediate corrective action.

In the most egregious circumstances, a landlord can be prosecuted with manslaughter if their failure to address gas safety issues results in the death of a tenant at their home. Because failures to comply with gas safety regulations pose a substantial risk to life and property, the consequences for failing to satisfy your duties are severe.

What are some of the best practices for Gas Safety Certificates?

With these recommendations, you may stay on top of your gas safety duties.

  • Keep a record of previous gas safety certifications, as well as the current one.
    Ensure that the records you offer to your renters are up to date. Set a reminder on your calendar for your next gas safety check.
  • Address any issue areas.
    Do not wait until the yearly inspection date to take action if you are worried about the safety of an appliance. Constant monitoring is required to maintain gas safety requirements. Have the Safe Gas engineer clarify any certificate elements that you don't understand during yearly inspections. Additionally, discuss with the engineer the extent and urgency of any additional action items that may be required for one of your appliances.
  • Communicate clearly with renters.
    For example, if an annual gas safety assessment is scheduled during a lease, ask your tenants for permission to visit the property. Explain the significance of the inspection and offer any pertinent information regarding the appointment.


The primary obligation is to ensure that their renters live in a secure and safe environment. Gas safety is a key legal requirement, and frequent checks must be performed with due caution. Maintain organisation by keeping all required records of previous gas safety certificates and communicating any concerns to your Gas Safe engineer to ensure a quick resolution.
