RH5 Gas Safety Certificates

To obtain the necessary RH5 Gas Safety Certificates the property must be evaluated by a qualified technician. A certificate will only be supplied once the technician is happy the property’s gas system is completely safe, at which point the tenant should be provided a copy of the certificate within 28 days, and the landlord should retain a copy for two years.

PGS Gas Safe certified experts can provide RH5 Gas Safety Certificates for up to two electrical devices at a rate of £90, with supplementary certificates available for £25 each. However, any work that needs to be done before cerficates can be issued will be charged in addition to this.

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 RH5 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.

Individuals who work with gas now have to be Gas Safe authorised, rather than registered with CORGI. Gas Safe authorisation is also required to undertake gas safety inspections and to provide RH5 Gas Safety Certificates for rented housing, and all PGS technicians are Gas Safe approved and can work with landlords and letting agents to certify properties as gas safe.

UK regulations require that rented accommodation must have a gas safety check undertaken at least once a year by a Gas Safe accredited plumber. At PGS, all our plumbers are Gas Safe accredited and can provide the necessary checks and required RH5 Gas Safety Certificates to property owners.
