Breaking Down What CP12 Means 

The CP12 certificate is a document that proves that a gas appliance has been safety checked and is safe to use. If you have a gas appliance in your home, you should make sure that it has a valid CP12 certificate. In this blog post, we will break down what the CP12 certificate means and how you can get one for your gas appliance.


What Is The Cp12 Certificate?

The CP12 certificate is a document that proves that your home or business has an approved fire sprinkler system. This certificate is issued by the Fire Department after a thorough inspection of the property's sprinkler system. The CP12 certificate is valid for three years and must be renewed every three years.


Who Needs A CP12 Certificate?

There are a few different groups of people who may need a CP12 certificate. 

  • First, if you're a landlord or property manager, you'll need to have a valid certificate in order to legally rent out your property.
  • Second, if you're planning on selling your property, the potential buyer will likely require a CP12 certificate as part of their due diligence. 
  • Finally, if you're having work done on your gas lines or appliances, the contractor will need to see your CP12 certificate before starting any work.

How To Get A CP12 Certificate

To get a CP12 certificate, you need to have your gas appliance serviced by a qualified technician. The technician will then issue you with a CP12 certificate, which is valid for 12 months.


The Importance Of A CP12

As a homeowner, you are responsible for maintaining the safety of your gas appliances. One way to do this is by ensuring that your appliances are regularly serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer. However, you also need to make sure that you have a valid CP12 certificate for your property.

A CP12 certificate is an annual safety check carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer. The certificate is proof that your appliances and gas installation has been checked and are safe to use. It is a legal requirement to have a valid CP12 certificate for your property if you have any gas appliances or a flue.

If you don't have a valid CP12 certificate, you could be putting yourself and your family at risk of serious injury or even death from carbon monoxide poisoning. You may also be breaking the law, as it is illegal to use any gas appliance without a valid CP12 certificate.

So, what do you need to do to get a CP12 certificate? Firstly, you need to book an appointment with a Gas Safe registered engineer. They will then carry out an inspection of your appliances and gas installation and issue you with a CP12 certificate if everything is safe.

If there are any problems with your appliances or gas installation, the engineer will make recommendations for repairs or replacements. Once these repairs have been made, they will issue you with a new CP12 certificate.

It's important to note that a CP12 certificate is only valid for 12 months


Renewing Your CP12 Certificate

If you're a landlord in the UK, you need a valid CP12 certificate to prove your Gas Safety. The theCP12 certificate is issued after an annual gas safety check has been carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer. 

The CP12 certificate is valid for 12 months from the date of the check. You need to make sure you get your property's gas safety checked every 12 months and renew your CP12 certificate accordingly.

You can get a CP12 certificate either by post or online (through the Gas Safe Register website). Once you have your CP12 certificate, you need to keep it safe, as you'll need to show it to your tenants and any prospective tenants.

If you don't have a valid CP12 certificate, you could be fined up to £6,000.

What Happens If You Don't Have A CP12 Certificate?

If you don't have a CP12 certificate, your gas appliances will not be covered under warranty, and you may be liable for any damages that occur as a result of using them. Additionally, your insurance company may not cover you for any accidents that occur while using gas appliances without a CP12 certificate.


CP12 Certificate Cost?

The CP12 certificate cost varies depending on the type and size of the appliance, as well as the company that you use. Generally, you can expect to pay between £50 and £100 for a CP12 certificate.
