Landlord's gas responsabilities

Under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, landlords have a legal responsibility to:

Landlords who don’t meet the requirements of The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 can face prosecution and heavy fines. In a recent case where two people died, the landlord was fined £350,000. Tenants can also face legal action against them.

If you rent out a property there are a number of legal obligations that you must meet. Failure to comply can result in heavy penalties, so make sure that you keep up to date with current requirements.

Maintain all gas appliances

It is the duty of landlords to ensure that all the gas appliances and flues they provide for tenants' use are maintained in a safe condition at all times.

Enlist approved professionals

Landlords are required to ensure any tradesman who carries out gas repairs or maintenance on any gas installation is a Gas Safe Register approved professional.

Arrange an annual safety check

Landlords must obtain an annual CP12 service proving safety compliance for each property. Upon completion of a successful safety check the engineer will issue the landlord with a CP12 Certificate.

Provide CP12 certificate to tenant

Landlords must provide their tenants with a copy of the CP12 certificate within 28 days of the check being completed, and to any new tenant before they move in.

Keep proper records

A copy of the CP12 Certificate must be kept by the landlord for two years.
