What is a Gas Safety Certificate?
A Gas Safety Certificate or CP12 is a certificate that confirms the condition of any gas appliances in the property such as boilers, ovens, hobs etc. The report will confirm the current condition of the gas appliances and confirm they are safe to continue using. It will also contain any recommendations for improving the safety of these appliances. This certificate is usually valid for 12 months.
