You must keep a record of the gas safety checks for at least two years. You must issue a copy of the latest record to existing tenants within 28 days of the check being completed; and to new tenants before they move in.
The purpose of a Landlord Safety Check (CP12) is to establish gas safety and will not rectify faults. Any faults reported, or discovered by the engineer can not be repaired at the time of your appointment. For this reason you are advised to call 02476 10 30 10 and ask a member of staff about diagnostics and repairs prior to booking a Landlord Safety Check (CP12). (The engineer will continue to carry out the checks and the full amount is payable upon receipt of invoice.) More information can be found by visiting www.quantic-heating.co.uk/services/repairs/. All hydraulic components within the boiler assembly are visually inspected and the engineer will not repressurise your central heating system without consent. There may be a delay in repairing your appliance.
