  • A standalone Gas Safety Check and Certificate (CP12) helping you to meet your gas safety requirements.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I have to have all my gas appliances inspected?
If you own them and they’re there for your tenants to use, it’s a legal requirement for you to have a gas safety record for any that are over a year old.
How will I know when my Gas Safety Certificate runs out?

We will write to you and your tenants several times before it runs out, so you can make sure you've got an appointment booked in.

Do I need an electrical safety certificate?
Legally you need an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) if you have a rental property in Scotland or if you have a house of multiple occupancy. But it is your responsibility as a landlord to make sure your property’s safe, as well as all the appliances being safe to use before a new tenant moves in. If you do have properties in Scotland, and need an EICR we can help with that.
If I have more than one gas appliance, do I have to pay extra?
Yes. We can service or check all the gas appliances you have for your tenants to use, if you pay a bit more. So your gas safety record has the details of all of your gas appliances, we need to inspect them all. But it’s up to you what product you choose. You can pick a minimum safety check or a full annual service and cover for repairs.
Can I add a Gas Safety Certificate to my existing HomeCare cover?
If you already have cover with us and wish to add a Gas Safety Certificate please call 0800 009 4633 and we can arrange this for you. Calls are free from mobiles and landlines. We record calls to help improve our service to you.
