Barnes Gas Safety Certificates
UK law requires that all rental properties must pass examinations by a professional plumber before Barnes 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.
PGS’s reminder service is designed to make sure landlords and agents stay on track with their next gas safety inspection and Barnes Gas Safety Certificates update. By keeping track on when these checks next need to be completed, it is easy for you to make sure all your properties are always safety certified.
In cases where rental accommodation is managed by an agent, the contract you have should make it obvious who is responsible for acquiring Barnes Gas Safety Certificates from a Gas Safe approved engineer. Regardless of who assumes this responsibility, the Health and Safety Executive advises that you obtain copies of all tests and services performed on the building to ensure all legal requirements are met.
Property owners without legitimate Barnes Gas Safety Certificates for their properties can be disciplined strictly. Such reprimands can even include a criminal conviction in cases where poorly maintained gas appliances result in harm or death and you will also have your insurance withdrawn.
Barnes Gas Safety Certificates will only be granted after our engineers are satisfied that the property has been examined, and is convinced there are no remaining safety concerns. The tenant should be given a copy of the certificate within 28 days, and the landlord should hold onto a copy for two years.
