RNS Plumbing & Heating for your Landlord's Gas Safety Inspection & Landlord's Gas Safety Certificate in Cannock, Rugeley, Lichfield, Staffordshire & the West Midlands

What is a Landlord's Gas Safety Certificate and Why do I Need One?

If you are a landlord and you let rented accommodation with a gas supply, then you have legal responsibilities regarding the safety of the gas appliances, pipework, flues and chimneys that you provide for your tenants.

You must provide your tenant with a record of your Gas Safety Checks, and the most common way is to use a Landlord's Gas Safety Record (LGSR) which is often referred to as a Gas Safety certificate or CP12.

You need to make sure that all flues or gas appliances are safe for use by having them gas safety checked every 12 months, and any problems found must be properly rectified. Both Gas Safety Inspection and rectification work must be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer, such as RNS Plumbing and Heating, who will issue you with a Gas Safety Certificate once the inspection has been successfully completed.

It is advisable that gas appliances are maintained or serviced regularly by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

It is also recommended that you fit a Carbon Monoxide Detector alarms in all areas where a gas appliance is situated.

If you do not have a valid Gas Safety Certificate, or do not carry out the required works, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has the power to prosecute you as this is a criminal offence and you could be punished by fines or imprisonment. For more information, visit the HSE website, or the Gas Safe Register website
