IG5 Gas Safety Certificates

There can be major consequences for you as a landlord if you do not have legitimate IG5 Gas Safety Certificates in place for your properties. Consequences may include withdrawal of insurance and, in some cases, even criminal prosecution where the tenant’s safety is put in danger from carbon monoxide-related leaks.

If your room which you rent out has no gas heating and only a gas boiler on the premises, you must still have a certificate – if you are unsure whether your accommodation requires IG5 Gas Safety Certificates, you should contact PGS. We have a detailed knowledge of the regulations, and can help you determine whether gas safe accreditation is required.

To be awarded with IG5 Gas Safety Certificates, dwellings must first pass an inspection by a certified technician. Once granted, copies of the certificates have to be provided to the tenant within 28 days and the landlord needs to, for at least two years, keep a copy too.

With PGS, up to two appliances will set you back £90 for the IG5 Gas Safe Certificates, and our Gas Safe trained engineers can also provide certificates for any other equipment at a cost of £25 per item. Any accompanying repair work will be charged in addition to the certificate costs.

When one of our engineers visits a rental property in order to carry out a gas safety check, it might be necessary to repair or service an appliance before IG5 Gas Safety Certificates can be issued. This can usually be carried out during the same visit, at a reduced cost.
