Selhurst Gas Safety Certificates

If as a landlord you are unable to provide valid Selhurst Gas Safety Certificates for your gas appliances, then the penalties can be severe. Your property insurance could be invalidated, and since as a landlord you are responsible for this aspect of your tenants’ safety, if the failure was to lead to a carbon monoxide fatality you could even be charged with manslaughter.

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

To gain the Selhurst Gas Safety Certificates for your properties, an inspection must be made and approved by a suitable engineer. The authorised specialist will award the relevant certificates once all appliances have been inspected and any safety issues have been resolved, and then the landlord is required to give the tenant a duplicate within 28 days and for two years keep a duplicate themselves.

When one of our gas safety professionals completes a rented housing inspection, they will determine whether any repairs are needed before the Selhurst Gas Safety Certificates are provided. Wherever possible, they will look to complete this work during the appointment, thereby saving you money.

UK law requires that all rental properties must pass examinations by a professional plumber before Selhurst Gas Safety Certificates can be issued. PGS can provide this service and complete these examinations, which include checking for gas leaks, unsafe installations, a build-up of combustion outputs due to inadequate ventilation and abnormal operating or standing pressures.
