who is responsible for gas installation

When you move into your Wulvern home we will make sure that the gas installation is sound, commission the appliances and issue you with a landlord's Gas Safety Certificate CP12.

As a Wulvern customer you must allow us reasonable access annually, to service the heating aplliances in your property. If at any time, you wish to have a gas heating appliance of your own installed in your home, you must first seek permission from Wulvern's gas team. This must be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered Gas Installer and you will be responsible for any costs. The work must be carried out to current Gas Installation and Use Regulations 1998, your Gas Safe installer will issue you with a certificate of compliance. This certificate must then be sent to the Gas Safe Register/ Local Authority Building Control Office and also to Wulvern's Gas Team. We must have a record of this for our records to comply with the 2005 Gas Appliance Notification Regulations.
