Landlords and Tenants - The UK Gas Safety Regulations You Need To Know

Landlords have to make sure that the gas fittings and appliances in the properties that they own are aligned with the Gas Safety Regulations. If you are a landlord or a tenant, are you wondering whether the appliances in your property are safe and meet the Gas Safety Regulations?

If you are a landlord and you fail to check your gas appliances, then it will mean that you are breaking the law and are putting your tenants at risk by having a property that is considered unsafe. For tenants, there is the risk that gas appliances could be unsafe and that could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, leaks and fires. These appliances could be your oven or your boiler, so it is important to have a clear understanding of what is expected of your landlord in terms of their responsibilities.

In this blog, we will look at the Gas Safety Regulations and what they mean for both landlords and tenants. We will also look at why obtaining a CP12 certificate is so important and the potential risks that could come into play should an annual safety check not take place.

Landlords and Gas Safety Regulations

If you are a landlord and are seeking guidance on the UK Gas Safety Regulations then you will need to undertake a number of vital tasks within your property. This can range from having an annual gas safety check to obtaining a CP12 certificate, all of which has to be completed by a Gas Safe registered engineer. In the UK, all landlords have a legal obligation to make sure that their property remains safe for tenants.

Annual Gas Safety Checks

Every landlord will need to make sure that they book an annual gas safety check on every gas appliance within their property to help avoid the risk of leaks or faults. For landlords, an annual check is a legal requirement. Once the inspection has been completed, you will then be given a gas safety record, which is also known as a gas safety certificate, and this should be updated every 12 months. The actual check can take up to 30 minutes but it is important for landlords to make sure that the engineer does check the entire gas system while also carrying out a tightness check to ensure that no leaks are present.

The Importance of Getting a CP12 Certificate

So, what is a CP12 certificate? This is also known as a gas safety certificate and it is a legal requirement for all landlords to have one. This is because it proves that all gas appliances are considered to be safe and fit for use. It will be supplied by a Gas Safe registered engineer once they have carried out their inspection and completed any required works. Therefore, it is important to make sure that you obtain this certificate as it is proof that all of your appliances are safe to use.

The law dictates that you should give your tenant a copy of the gas safety certificate prior to them moving in or within 28 days of the check being completed. These should then be updated on an annual basis as this will ensure that the appliances are still free of faults and that they meet all Gas Safety regulations.

Make Sure Gas Appliances are Maintained

Landlords have to comply with the Gas Safety Regulations and this means that all appliances, chimneys and flues, as well as gas pipework, are kept in a safe condition. Private landlords have to take responsibility for the maintenance of gas appliances located in their property. This means that by having an annual gas safety check, your tenants can have complete confidence when it comes to using those appliances.

Fail to Follow the Gas Safety Regulations and You Could Face Penalties

It is the responsibility of the landlord to ensure that they adhere to the Gas Safety Regulations. If you fail to comply and you are unable to provide tenants with a CP12 certificate then it could result in a fine and imprisonment for up to six months. What this means is that it’s vital to follow the regulations and have an annual inspection before being given your gas safety certificate.

Tenants and Gas Safety Regulations

As a tenant, the responsibility falls on you to check that appliances are safe to use within the home and that all issues are reported to your landlord. Furthermore, you will need to give access to Gas Safe registered engineers so that the works can be carried out. Along with this, you should speak with your landlord to make sure that an annual gas inspection can take place in order to obtain the CP12 certificate, therefore, you should take the following steps.

Arrange a Gas Safe Engineer

 If you are a new tenant and renting a property, for any gas appliances that you take into the property, it is your responsibility to check them as well as double-check the existing appliances because assuming they are safe is not a wise move. We recommend that you obtain the CP12 certificate from your landlord and arrange for a Gas Safe engineer to carry out a safety check on every appliance prior to moving in.

Identifying Warning Signs for Gas Appliances

While checking your gas appliances, you should look for cracks, leaks and black marks as these could highlight a problem. If you do spot these then you should make sure that you call a Gas Safe registered engineer. Furthermore, when you are using gas appliances, you should only use them for their intended purposes, as using them incorrectly could result in a gas leak. If you do smell gas in the property then you should open all doors and windows and leave the property before calling National Emergency Gas on 0800 111 999.

The Right Protection from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

If any of the appliances within the property are faulty then it could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. This is an odourless gas that is clear and when inhaled can lead to death. Therefore, it is advised that you get a CO alarm fitted within the home to ensure that any leaks are detected before you are given a warning. It’s also crucial to understand the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning as this will help to keep everyone safe. There are few major symptoms to keep an eye out for which are headaches, nausea, dizziness, breathlessness, collapse and a loss of consciousness.

So, whether you are a landlord or a tenant, it can help to understand what is expected and required when it comes to the Gas Safety Regulations.

I was really concerned about getting a new boiler by a company I found on the internet. We need not have worried in fact quite the opposite. Excellent communication, great price, lovely office staff, fantastic installation team. No mess, no bother I just wish that we had done it years ago. They moved the boiler out of the kitchen into the airing cupboard, silent boiler fabulous shower pressure no tanks in the loft. They stayed until about 9 pm to finish the job that day. We can't thank you enough.

My experience with Prime Time Boilers has been truly excellent all the way. My old boiler was deemed dangerous to use at this year check-up; I called Prime Time Boiler, a very experienced engineer came to visit us and gave us advice on which boiler to buy according to our type of house and family needs; very soon after we had a brand new boiler and cylinder tank replaced by two professional and polite workers. We have also set up a yearly boiler protection plan. All was at convenient prices compared to what other companies were offering. Thank you.

Excellent job done by Ray, Jack and Mitch to install my new Worcester Bosch Combi Boiler. The job was a conversion from a conventional system and involved moving the boiler from downstairs to the upstairs airing cupboard and taking the flue up through the roof. Routing the condense pipe to avoid the possibility of freezing in winter was also a complicated job but well done. New gas lines were installed and all the old iron gas pipes were disconnected and made safe. All the work was performed in a highly professional manner and I am very satisfied with the new boiler.

Great service all round, had a friendly site visit to assess the issue of having to install a new boiler and flu which was tricky to due to flat above. They were knowledgeable and competitive and the payment plan was perfect for our needs. The actual installation was very quick the engineer was very professional and tidy so happy days. We hope to get another job sorted with them soon for a different property.
