E9 Gas Safety Certificates

Buildings that contain a gas supply and appliances in which certain rooms are rented out require E9 Gas Safety Certificates, even if there is no gas supply in the rented rooms. To make sure you have the right certification in place, you should contact PGS for confirmation.

Landlords must make sure their properties with a gas supply are assessed by a Gas Safe plumber once every 12 months, to meet their legal responsibilities. PGS can supply a Gas Safe registered plumber to complete the required assessments and provide E9 Gas Safety Certificates to landlords and rental agents.

In cases where rental accommodation is managed by an agent, the contract you have should make it obvious who is responsible for acquiring E9 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.

In order for a property to receive its E9 Gas Safety Certificates it must first pass certain tests administered by an engineer. Once the engineer is convinced of the property’s gas safety, they will furnish the landlord with copies of the certificates, one for your tenant – to be handed over within 28 days – and one for you to file for 24 months.

Landlords are expected to be able to produce valid E9 Gas Safety Certificates when asked to do so. If you do not have a valid certificate you could face penalties that range from the annulment of insurance policies to a criminal conviction if the tenant’s safety is put at risk.
