DA17 Gas Safety Certificates

British regulations stipulate that landlords must have their rented housing evaluated by a Gas Safe certified professional no less than once per year. At PGS, our certified professionals can complete these evaluations and present the required DA17 Gas Safety Certificates to property owners.

DA17 Gas Safety Certificates can only be supplied once a rented property has been thoroughly assessed by a trained expert. During a safety visit, PGS’s trained engineers complete a variety of tests which include ventilation and flue effectiveness, fitting issues, gas leaks, signs of unsafe usage and standing/working pressures.

Some landlords mistakenly think that if there are no gas appliances in a rented room then DA17 Gas Safety Certificates are unnecessary. However, if the building in question contains a gas supply a valid certificate is still essential, and PGS is able to provide advice and guidance for you if you are uncertain of what your building needs.

To obtain the necessary DA17 Gas Safety Certificates the property must be evaluated by a qualified technician. A certificate will only be supplied once the technician is happy the property’s gas system is completely safe, at which point the tenant should be provided a copy of the certificate within 28 days, and the landlord should retain a copy for two years.

If a rental agent manages your property, you should make sure that the management contract specifies who will take charge of acquiring DA17 Gas Safety Certificates. As advised by the Health and Safety Executive, you should always demand copies of the resulting documentation for all work carried out, so you be confident your property meets all its legal obligations.
