Shadwell Gas Safety Certificates

In cases where rental accommodation is managed by an agent, the contract you have should make it obvious who is responsible for acquiring Shadwell Gas Safety Certificates from a Gas Safe approved engineer. Regardless of who assumes this responsibility, the Health and Safety Executive advises that you obtain copies of all tests and services performed on the building to ensure all legal requirements are met.

To obtain the necessary Shadwell 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.

In order to work with domestic gas supplies and appliances in the UK, plumbers must now be on the Gas Safe Register, regardless of the continued existence of CORGI. So that PGS can work with landlords and letting agents to supply Shadwell Gas Safety Certificates, all of our plumbers are Gas Safe accredited.

Shadwell 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.

The punishment for not having official Shadwell Gas Safety Certificates can range from fines to a criminal conviction depending on the consequences. As a landlord you are responsible for the safety of your tenant and if the tenant is in any way injured as a result of an unsafe appliance, you are responsible in the eyes of the law and could therefore face prosecution.
