EN4 Gas Safety Certificates
If a rental agent manages your property, you should make sure that the management contract specifies who will take charge of acquiring EN4 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.
With PGS, up to two appliances will set you back £75 for the EN4 Gas Safe Certificates, and our Gas Safe trained engineers can also provide certificates for any other equipment at a cost of £20 per item. Any accompanying repair work will be charged in addition to the certificate costs.
In order to qualify for EN4 Gas Safety Certificates, rental accommodation must undergo a range of tests, including those for leaks, installation faults, aeration issues, evidence of misuse and flue efficiency. All these essential tests can be completed by a PGS qualified plumber to ensure the effective working order of your gas equipment.
On occasion, during a routine gas safety test, our certified specialists at PGS may discover that additional repairs are required before EN4 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.
If, as a landlord or property manager, you are unable to supply official EN4 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.
