IG8 Gas Safety Certificates

As a landlord, not obtaining the necessary IG8 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 For example, insurance policies can be withdrawn immediately and, even more worryingly, because you are liable for the tenant’s safety with respect to the gas supply, if the tenant was harmed because of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.

IG8 Gas Safety Certificates can only be supplied once a rented property has been thoroughly assessed by a trained expert. During a safety visit, PGS’s trained engineers complete a variety of tests which include ventilation and flue effectiveness, fitting issues, gas leaks, signs of unsafe usage and standing/working pressures.

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 IG8 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.

British regulations stipulate that landlords must have their rented housing evaluated by a Gas Safe certified professional no less than once per year. At PGS, our certified professionals can complete these evaluations and present the required IG8 Gas Safety Certificates to property owners.

For IG8 Gas Safe Certificates which include up to two appliances, you will pay 90, and for any further certificates you will pay 25 for each one these are also available from your PGS Gas Safe endorsed technician. If maintenance or repairs are necessary in advance of awarding the certificates, you will pay for this work on a separate basis.
