Waltham Forest Gas Safety Certificates

To be awarded with Waltham Forest Gas Safety Certificates, dwellings must first pass an inspection by a certified technician. Once granted, copies of the certificates have to be provided to the tenant within 28 days and the landlord needs to, for at least two years, keep a copy too.

If, as a landlord or property manager, you are unable to supply official Waltham Forest 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.

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 Waltham Forest 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.

When a PGS engineer visits a rental property in order to complete a gas safety check, they will inspect all gas equipment for, amongst other things, signs of leaks, misuse, poor aeration, and flue efficiency including rust removal. Waltham Forest Gas Safety Certificates will be awarded once these inspections are complete.

On occasion, during a routine gas safety test, our certified specialists at PGS may discover that additional repairs are required before Waltham Forest Gas Safety Certificates can be provided to the landlord or rental agent. These repairs are often done as part of the same appointment, lowering your costs.
