Havering Gas Safety Certificates

It is often the rental agent who arranges for a Gas Safe endorsed technician to visit a property and grant Havering Gas Safety Certificates. However, this responsibility should be formally documented within your property management contract, and the Health and Safety Executive encourages you to get copies of details relating to all gas safety-related work performed to ensure it meets all legal demands.

In order to qualify for Havering Gas Safety Certificates, rental accommodation must undergo a range of tests, including those for leaks, installation faults, aeration issues, evidence of misuse and flue efficiency. All these essential tests can be completed by a PGS qualified plumber to ensure the effective working order of your gas equipment.

If, as a landlord or property manager, you are unable to supply official Havering Gas Safety Certificates upon request, you may be severely penalised. For example, it is not uncommon for insurance companies to withdraw their cover of uncertified rental accommodation and you could even face a prison sentence for manslaughter if there were to be a fatal accident caused by an unsafe gas supply or appliance.

Landlords cannot obtain Havering Gas Safety Certificates for their properties until specific safety tests are completed, and the results are of an acceptable standard to your plumber. The tenant should then be issued with a copy of the certificate within 28 days and the landlord should store a copy for two years.

In order to be able to grant rental properties the required Havering Gas Safety Certificates, and undertake gas product repairs and maintenance, plumbers must now be Gas Safe, rather than CORGI, registered. All of PGS’s plumbers are Gas Safe certified, and can therefore support all of a landlord’s gas safety needs.
