What Is A CP12 Certificate?

Gas Safety Certificate - CP12

A CP12 is also known as a gas safety certificate. It is a document that outlines the appliances tested in an annual gas safety check. Gas safety certificates are valid for a period of 12 months and must be renewed every time they expire. NW Boilers can provide you with a CP12 certificate.

Who are they for?

CP12s are for landlords who have multiple tenants living in their building. In the UK, CP12s are a legal requirement for all landlords owners of commercial properties. 

They are required by law for the main reason that it is important for gas appliances to be checked every 12 months to ensure they are in working order. If a simple boiler servicing is missed, it could lead out to something as bad as a fire in the building.

How often do you need a new CP12 certificate?

Gas safety certificates are required to be renewed every 12 months. Each CP12 has an expiry date of 12 months before the next one is required for another 12 months and so on. Legal action can be taken against you if you fail to supply your tenants with a CP12 certificate.

If you are a resident and your landlord has not provided you with a copy of a gas safety certificate, you should contact them and request one. If they refuse to provide you with one, you should contact the local authority for further information.

What's the difference between a CP12 and a landlord gas certificate?

There is absolutely no difference between these two documents as they are the same thing, just with different names. A CP12 covers all gas equipment on the property. A valid CP12 is valid for all gas appliances. 

This includes ovens, boilers, fittings and pipework. An inspection is carried out to check everything is in order and something as little as a boiler repair has either been done or doesn’t need doing.

How Long Does it Take to do a CP12?

Usually, a gas safety certificate only requires around 45 minutes to an hour of your time to fill out. The vast majority of them take upwards of an hour to complete. The time to complete can increase depending on the number of gas appliances in the building. 

If your property has lots of appliances, the time can increase by upwards of half an hour. However, it’s important you don’t skip filling these in as they are a legal requirement and each tenant is entitled to a copy of one.

How Much is a CP12 Certificate?

A CP12 certificate has no exact price. It is up to your boiler engineers to give you a price for one. For example, at NW Boilers, we provide our certificates for around £80.

New Tenants

Every tenant in your building is legally required to receive a copy of the CP12 when they are moving in for the first time. Along with their letting pack, the tenants should receive a copy of the gas safety certificate as well as the tenancy agreement which you have discussed. 

Remember to also include any other documents to which they are entitled.

Conclusion

A CP12 is a gas safety certificate and it is important for landlords to provide them to their tenants. If you are in the process of renting out a property, make sure your landlord provides you with one. The cost will vary depending on how many appliances there are in the building but we offer certificates starting at £80. Contact us today if you need help figuring out who should receive this document and when they should be given it! 

We can also assist with creating an inspection checklist that covers all aspects of your boiler system including servicing, repairs and gas appliance checks so everything runs smoothly without any issues like leaks or fires from undetected problems.
