Do I need a gas safety certificate?
If you’re a homeowner in England, Scotland or Wales, the answer is yes – by law, you need to get a gas safety certificate every 12 months. This is to make sure that all your gas appliances are safe and working properly.
You also need a certificate if you’re renting out a property as the landlord.
What happens if you do not have a valid Gas Safety Certificate?
If you do not have a valid gas appliance certificate, your tenant can report this to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The HSE is responsible for enforcing gas safety in the UK.
If you do not have a valid certificate, your tenant can also take you to court. If the judge decides that you have broken the law, they can make you pay a fine.
You could also be prosecuted if there is an accident or incident involving gas at your property like gas leaks, and it is found that you do not have a valid certificate.
In extreme cases, you could go to prison.
