Morland & Martin Plumbing and Heating Ltd

Landlord Gas Safety

Morland and Martin offer gas appliance testing and are able to provide you with a Landlords Gas Safety Certificate giving both you and your tenant piece of mind.

Landlord Certificates

All landlords are obliged to provide tenants with safe and wellmaintained gas appliances. This needs to be proven legally with a new Landlords Gas Safety Inspection Certificate CP12 every 12 months. Our engineers are Gas Safety Registered and are up to date with the latest safety regulations. They are able to conduct safety inspections to ensure that all gas appliances and installations are working within acceptable parameters at the time of inspection and who can, consequently, provide this safety inspection certificate.

Landlords of residential accommodation have responsibilities for combating Legionnaires’ disease. Health and safety legislation requires that landlords carry out risk assessments for the Legionella bacteria which cause Legionnaires ’ disease and thereafter maintain control measures to minimise the risk. It used to be that the code was only for large scale hot and cold water systems but this was changed.

What is Legionnaires’ disease?

Legionnaires’ disease is a pneumonia like illness caused by the Legionella bacteria and can be fatal. The infection is caused by breathing in small droplets of water contaminated by the bacteria. The disease cannot be passed from one person to another.

Legionella bacteria are found in the natural environment and may contaminate and grow in water systems, including domestic hot and cold water systems. They survive low temperatures and thrive at temperatures between 20 – 45°C if the conditions are right. They are killed by high temperatures at 60°C or above.

The outbreak of Legionnaires Disease in the Renfrew area, plus the Edinburgh outbreak in 2012, brought the risk of legionella into our consciousness. It is the case that private landlords have an obligation to carry out legionnaires risk assessments of water systems within their rental properties.

Landlords must now do the following:
  • Carry out a legionella risk assessment
  • Introduce a written scheme i.e. a course of action for

tenants to following in order to manage the ongoing legionella risk. Most rented premises will be low risk but it is important that risk assessments are carried out and control measures introduced.

To help you further, below is some information on Legionnaires disease and the impact if could have on a community. Further advice is available from the Health & Safety Executive.
