Who Has to Get a Gas Safety (CP12) Certificate?
UK landlords with gas appliances and fittings – including central heating, boilers and flues – must conduct an annual safety check conducted by a Gas Safe engineer.
If you are a landlord however, it is very likely that these laws do apply to you. You must keep record of the safety check for two years and supply new tenants with a copy of the certificate before they move in and within 28 days of completing a new check.
Which Gas Appliances Need to Be Checked?
Your legal duties as a landlord cover any gas appliances that you own and provide for the use of the tenants of your property. If the tenant supplies their own gas appliances, then you will be responsible for its installation parts and pipework, but not the appliance itself.
Is it OK to Only Have a Digital Record of My Gas Safety Certificate (CP12)?
Yes! It is perfectly acceptable to keep the records of your gas inspection electronically – and many landlords find it far more convenient.
As long as you can produce a hard copy when needed (such as when new tenants are moving in), you keep it safe (i.e. you don’t delete if from your electronic records) and it uniquely identifies the engineer (e.g. with a signature), having only an electronic copy is absolutely fine. If sharing an electronic copy with your tenants, be sure they first have the means to access it
What about servicing and maintenance?
The HSE regulations make a distinction between gas safety checks and the related servicing and maintenance activities that may need to be undertaken. As a landlord you have the responsibility of ensuring all appliances (specifically boilers), as well as pipes and flues, are operating safely at all times.
