Swiss Cottage Gas Safety Certificates

A property will only be provided with the required Swiss Cottage Gas Safety Certificates once your plumber has completed the requisite tests, and is satisfied that there are no outstanding issues. Once provided, a copy of the certificate should be passed on to your tenant within 28 days, and you should keep a copy yourself for at least two years.

When we attend a rental house to perform a gas safety test, we will identify whether any additional action is needed before our engineers can present you will your Swiss Cottage Gas Safety Certificates. Usually we complete this work alongside the gas safety test, decreasing your costs.

Regardless of whether it is a rental agent or you as the landlord who appoints the Gas Safe sanctioned plumber to provide Swiss Cottage 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.

Landlords that do not have the required Swiss Cottage Gas Safety Certificates in place can face significant punishment. For example, your building and contents insurance may be annulled and if your neglect causes a tenant to die of carbon monoxide poisoning, you could be prosecuted.

Buildings that contain a gas supply and appliances in which certain rooms are rented out require Swiss Cottage Gas Safety Certificates, even if there is no gas supply in the rented rooms. To make sure you have the right certification in place, you should contact PGS for confirmation.
