IG1 Gas Safety Certificates

Landlords cannot obtain IG1 Gas Safety Certificates for their properties until specific safety tests are completed, and the results are of an acceptable standard to your plumber. The tenant should then be issued with a copy of the certificate within 28 days and the landlord should store a copy for two years.

On occasion, during a routine gas safety test, our certified specialists at PGS may discover that additional repairs are required before IG1 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.

Under UK law, landlords are required to have a gas safety check fulfilled in all properties with a gas supply on an annual basis and by a Gas Safe registered technician. At PGS, our technicians are Gas Safe accredited, and can therefore complete these safety checks and award IG1 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 IG1 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.

As a landlord, not obtaining the necessary IG1 Gas Safety Certificates for your properties is significantly risky. For example, insurance policies can be withdrawn immediately and, even more worryingly, because you are liable for the tenant’s safety with respect to the gas supply, if the tenant was harmed because of poorly maintained gas appliances, you could face prosecution and even prison.
