Landlord Gas Safety Certificate
A landlord’s gas safety certificate, also referred to as the landlord’s gas safety record, is required by law to be held for all rental accommodation in the UK where there are gas appliances present. The requirement is enshrined in the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. The law requires all gas appliances in a rented property to be checked annually, with a gas safety record being completed and a copy provided to tenants. The definition of ‘rented’ is broad covering accommodation which is provided under a contractual arrangement for domestic staff as well as rented properties in general.
Gas safety records, Sometimes referred to as a CP12 (From CORGI Proforma 12 when CORGI was UK body for gas safety matters), are completed by Blackpool Gas Ltd. who are registered with the Gas Safe Register scheme which took over from the previous CORGI scheme in 2009.
