Failure to produce valid gas safety certificates (CP 12) can result in prosecution, and can also nullify your property insurance, which in turn means you, may be liable for potentially expensive civil claims. The landlord is responsible for this aspect of their tenants’ safety, and if non-compliance were to lead to a death from carbon monoxide poisoning the landlord could be charged with manslaughter.
If you are a landlord and have gas appliances that require gas safety certificates call Phoenix Plumbing & Heating now for advice and information.
