    Gas Safety Certificate (CP12)

    I have new Gas cooker installed by CORGI engineer of my rented property. He mentioned in his documents about tenancy and reading about the cooker.

    Do I still need CP12 (Gas Safety Certificate) or wait util next year?

    Firstly it was installed by a "gas safe" engineer... Corgi doesnt exist

    Secondly you need a current safety certificate at the property you rent at all times which covers all gas appliances including fires, cookers & boilers.

    He should have done the checks for a new install anyway so its just a 2 minute job for him to issue you with a new cert to ensure your covered on a CP12. Personally I think the new install cert should cover you for 12 months but its no hassle for him to provide it free.

    Thank you for the correction, he was a "Gas Safe Engineer" from HOTPOINT. It's just because the term CORGI is used most of the time.
    Thing's he left is "Gas Safety Check Form" with details about the checks he conducted and on more paper which is showing "Gas Safe" passed.

    You don't need a CP12 for that appliance for the first 12 months of a new install.

    themorgatron is correct, the safety checks and paperwork left by the engineer cover you for the cooker for the first year.
    If you have any other gas appliances e.g. Central Heating Boiler you'll still need a current CP12 for that but I expect you knew that anyway.
