Landlord Gas Safety Certificate Glasgow

Landlord Gas Safety Certificate Glasgow

Gas safety in rental properties is a serious matter. Failure to comply with the regulations can have devastating consequences for both landlords and tenants. Failure to provide a landlord gas safety
certificate can even result in criminal prosecution.

As a landlord in Glasgow, you are responsible for all gas appliances in the property and must ensure that they’re maintained annually. This applies to all rental properties – including short-term and holiday lets.
You must have a gas safety inspection completed and provide your Glasgow tenant with the landlord gas safety certificate – known as a CP12.

The gas safety inspection can only be carried out by a suitably qualified, gas safe registered engineer.

What does a gas safety inspection involve?

The first step in our inspection is to check all gas appliances in the rental property. Our gas safe registered engineer will check that every gas appliance is properly adjusted and securely fitted.

The second step in the inspection is checking all of the flues and chimneys in your rental property. What we look for here is an adequate air supply, and that no gas is able to leak from the pipework. This step is vital for preventing carbon monoxide poisoning.

How do I control the risks from legionella in my water system?

The key point is to design, maintain and operate your water services under conditions that will either prevent or adequately control the risk from legionella bacteria. It is important that you either have, or have access to, competent help to fulfil these obligations.

If you identify a risk that you are unable to prevent, you must introduce appropriate controls. You should introduce a course of action that will help you to control any risks from legionella by describing:

  • your system and its component parts eg developing a schematic diagram
  • who is responsible for carrying out the assessment and managing its implementation
  • the safe and correct operation of your system
  • what control methods and other precautions you will be using
  • what checks will be carried out to ensure risks are being managed and how often

You should where appropriate:

  • ensure that the release of water spray is properly controlled
  • avoid water temperatures and conditions that favour the growth of legionella and other micro-organisms
  • ensure water cannot stagnate anywhere in the system by keeping pipe lengths as short as possible or by removing redundant pipe work
  • avoid materials that encourage the growth of legionella (The Water Fittings & Materials Directory references fittings, materials, and appliances approved for use on the UK Water Supply System by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme)
  • keep the system and the water in it clean
  • treat water to either control the growth of legionella (and other microorganisms) or limit their ability to grow.
