Do You Need a Gas Certificate for Your Caravan Static Holiday Home Every Year?
Gas Safety regulations
According to Gas Safety regulations, if your static caravan is on a rented site, you must acquire a new gas certificate every year.
What’s more, if you are letting out your static caravan or mobile home – even if it’s just to friends and family – you must get an annual CP12 Landlord’s Gas Safety certificate.
In most cases, the responsibility falls to the owner to arrange an annual gas certificate, however the site agent will usually have the power to carry this out and bill the owner if it has not been carried out by the agreed deadline.
The importance of annual checks
We recently visited a caravan that was supplied by bottled gas, although the customer was not happy about having to arrange the inspection as they only used the holiday home one month in the year.
However, during inspection, it was found that the hose feeding the gas from the LPG bottles was degenerated through non-use, and the gas bottles had never been replaced in three years. It was a disaster waiting to happen.
This is why these safety inspections are carried out annually.
