After failing to provide gas safety certificates (CP12) for a gas cooker and boiler at a property that was being rented out to a family, a landlord was fined for endangering the lives of his tenants. An inspection of the property by the council uncovered various defects which the landlord was required to take action for the required improvements. In addition to the defects, the landlord failed to provide an up-to-date gas safety certificate (CP12) for more than 2 years. The Portsmouth landlord was fines £11,500 and ordered to pay a further £4,500 for costs.

To ensure that all your gas appliances are safe to use, please make sure you use a registered gas safety engineer when servicing your gas cooker, boiler and fire. On completion of all gas work you should request a gas safety certificate as proof work.
