If you’re a landlord in the Bristol area you are required by law (under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998) to have a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate (otherwise known as a CP12 Gas Safety Certificate) for all the gas burning appliances in your rental properties.
The Gas Safety Certificate checks equipment such as gas boilers, gas fires, gas cookers and gas water heaters to ensure they are in a safe condition for use and lasts for 12 months (or until the tenancy changes hands). They can only be issued by Gas Safe registered engineers.
