One of the changes is:- “introduce a degree of flexibility to the timing of landlords’ annual gas safety checks. This change means that landlords can carry out the annual gas safety check in the two months before the due date and retain the existing expiry date. This avoids landlords waiting until the last minute and not gaining access, or having to shorten the annual cycle check to comply with the law.”
In practical terms, I wondered what method the person doing the check is supposed to use to establish the current expiry date, which he/she needs to post-date the new certificate. Am I expected to send him/her a copy of the existing CP-12 or is there some central database like with MoTs?
I have had one gas man tell me he could not pre or post date the CP-12, and neither of the two I spoke to were aware of the change, which came in April 2018.
Of course there’s no way I can see to ‘phone HSE and their enquiry portal helpfully informs me I might wait 30 days for a reply.
