IG2 Gas Safety Certificates

UK law requires that all rental properties must pass examinations by a professional plumber before IG2 Gas Safety Certificates can be issued. PGS can provide this service and complete these examinations, which include checking for gas leaks, unsafe installations, a build-up of combustion outputs due to inadequate ventilation and abnormal operating or standing pressures.

As a property owner, if you do not have IG2 Gas Safety Certificates you can be severely punished. In most cases not having a certificate will result in your insurance be invalidated; however, if there is an accident relating to the gas supply, such as carbon monoxide leaks, as the landlord you could actually be prosecuted.

When a PGS technician goes to a rented dwelling to undertake a gas safety inspection, certain repairs may need to be completed before IG2 Gas Safety Certificates can be awarded. Typically, this can be done at the same time as the inspection, often reducing the price.

Contracts between landlords and rental agents must spell out whose job it is to organise for a Gas Safe qualified professional to inspect the property and award IG2 Gas Safety Certificates. It is also seen as best practice by the Health and Safety Executive that the landlord keeps copies of all certificates and repair documents for certainty of the accommodation being safe and legal for renting.

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 IG2 Gas Safety Certificates to landlords and rental agents.
