Landlord Gas Safety Certification & Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
At Livgas we know that there have been a significant increase in regulations that as a landlord in Scotland you have to comply with. We try to make it as easy as possible for you when it comes to your property’s boiler and heating system.
The two essential regulations that as a landlord you need to know are: –
- All rented accommodation has to have a Landlord’s Gas Safety certificate know as a CP12 which details all the gas appliances in your property. By law, landlords need to get this Gas Safety Certificate every twelve months. It must come from a Gas Safe Registered engineer for all pipe work, gas appliances and flues installed at your property. At a minimum the gas safety certificate must include:
- a description of and the location of each appliance or flue checked
- the name, registration number and signature of the individual carrying out the check
- the date on which the appliance or flue was checked
- the address of the property at which the appliance or flue is installed
- the name and address of the landlord (or their agent where appropriate)
- any safety-related defect identified and any remedial action taken
- confirmation that the safety check has included an examination of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) to (d) of
regulation 26(9) of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998
2. You must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) that calculates the energy efficiency of your property including a heat loss rating and recommendations on how to reduce it. The EPC assessment must be carried out by a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor which we are.
Livgas Energy is a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor and we can issue Landlord Gas Safety Certificates. So we are able to help Landlords fully with both of these requirements.

One last thing!
By law, landlords must install a long life carbon monoxide detector in your property where there are fixed combustion appliances. As a silent killer carbon monoxide cannot be tasted or smelt so fit a CO2 detector and save a life.
