The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 place a statutory duty on landlords to ensure the safety of all gas appliances under their control. For a concise explanation of the responsibilities of landlords under this legislation see the Gas Safe Register page on Gas Safety Certificates.
In summary though, landlords are responsible for the safety of all gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants' use and must
CP12 is the form provided by the Gas Safe Register to record details of the checks made and any remedial work carried out.
Note that, as well as the statutory inspections for the CP12 certification, there is an obligation to maintain gas appliances in a safe condition. Effective maintenance normally involves regular inspection and adjustment or repair as advised in the manufacturer's servicing recommendations. Most boiler manufacturers specify an annual service, so you would be well advised to get boilers serviced at the same time as the CP12 inspection is done.
