HA1 Gas Safety Certificates

Regardless of whether it is a rental agent or you as the landlord who appoints the Gas Safe sanctioned plumber to provide HA1 Gas Safety Certificates, you should always obtain duplicates of all details of the work completed, according to the Health and Safety Executive. Furthermore, the contract between you and the agent should make it apparent who is legally responsible for scheduling tests and servicing appointments.

If, as a landlord or property manager, you are unable to supply official HA1 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.

By law, rental properties must have a gas safety check carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer. At PGS, our engineers are Gas Safe registered so are able to carry out these checks and issue the necessary HA1 Gas Safety Certificates to landlords.

HA1 Gas Safety Certificates will only be given out to landlords once their property has been checked by an engineer and all safety issues have been resolved. Once the certificates are provided, the landlord should pass a copy onto the tenants within 28 days, and keep a copy for two years also.

In order to qualify for HA1 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.
