Landlords / Home Owners - Gas or Oil Safety Inspection
In 1996 the Government introduced a law that all landlords who rent part, or all of a property, must have all gas appliances and pipe work checked, and are certificated (CP12) every 12 months.
The same detail is now applied to all oil fired installations and a (CD12) is issued every 12 months.
What does a Landlord Gas Safety Gas Inspection Include?
- Check each gas appliance for gas soundness.
- Check standing and working pressure if test points available.
