CR2 Gas Safety Certificates

UK law requires that all rental properties must pass examinations by a professional plumber before CR2 Gas Safety Certificates can be issued. PGS can provide this service and complete these examinations, which include checking for gas leaks, unsafe installations, a build-up of combustion outputs due to inadequate ventilation and abnormal operating or standing pressures.

Anyone working with gas now has to be registered with Gas Safe, rather than CORGI. PGS’s Gas Safe authorised specialists have all the necessary qualifications to work with landlords and letting agents on their rental properties, which means we can undertake all the required safety assessments and thereby also issue CR2 Gas Safety Certificates.

To gain the CR2 Gas Safety Certificates for your properties, an inspection must be made and approved by a suitable engineer. The authorised specialist will award the relevant certificates once all appliances have been inspected and any safety issues have been resolved, and then the landlord is required to give the tenant a duplicate within 28 days and for two years keep a duplicate themselves.

In cases where a rented room in a property does not itself have gas heating, but there is a gas boiler in the building, the landlord must still obtain the relevant CR2 Gas Safety Certificates. If you are uncertain whether or not your building requires certification, PGS can provide guidance.

Regardless of whether it is a rental agent or you as the landlord who appoints the Gas Safe sanctioned plumber to provide CR2 Gas Safety Certificates, you should always obtain duplicates of all details of the work completed, according to the Health and Safety Executive. Furthermore, the contract between you and the agent should make it apparent who is legally responsible for scheduling tests and servicing appointments.
