Wapping Gas Safety Certificates

If you use a rental agent to manage your property, your contract should make it clear who will arrange the appointment with a Gas Safe registered engineer in order to obtain Wapping Gas Safety Certificates. The advice from the Health and Safety Executive is to also request copies of any checks and maintenance information relating to your property to make sure that it meets legal requirements.

It can be difficult to recall exactly when your Wapping Gas Safety Certificates are up for renewal, or when your next annual safety evaluation is called for, particularly if you have a large property portfolio. To help resolve this problem, and prevent inadvertent regulation infringements, PGS provides a safety check prompting service for landlords and agents.

To gain the Wapping 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.

Most rented properties with a gas supply will require Wapping Gas Safety Certificates and this includes cases where the let rooms do not contain gas-fired heating or appliances. PGS can provide landlords and letting agents with expert advice on what accreditation is required based on their thorough knowledge of gas safety regulations.

If, as a landlord or property manager, you are unable to supply official Wapping Gas Safety Certificates upon request, you may be severely penalised. For example, it is not uncommon for insurance companies to withdraw their cover of uncertified rental accommodation and you could even face a prison sentence for manslaughter if there were to be a fatal accident caused by an unsafe gas supply or appliance.
