TW19 Gas Safety Certificates
Even if a room in a building is rented out without gas heating, but there is a gas boiler in the property, the landlord must be able to present a valid certificate. If you’re not sure whether your property requires TW19 Gas Safety Certificates, then you can contact PGS for further advice.
As a property owner, if you do not have TW19 Gas Safety Certificates you can be severely punished. In most cases not having a certificate will result in your insurance be invalidated; however, if there is an accident relating to the gas supply, such as carbon monoxide leaks, as the landlord you could actually be prosecuted.
To work with gas, and award TW19 Gas Safety Certificates, to rental dwellings, engineers now have to be Gas Safe approved – as a result, CORGI is now just a membership organisation. All PGS plumbers are Gas Safe approved and able to serve all your gas-related requirements.
When a PGS technician goes to a rented dwelling to undertake a gas safety inspection, certain repairs may need to be completed before TW19 Gas Safety Certificates can be awarded. Typically, this can be done at the same time as the inspection, often reducing the price.
If a rental agent manages your property, you should make sure that the management contract specifies who will take charge of acquiring TW19 Gas Safety Certificates. As advised by the Health and Safety Executive, you should always demand copies of the resulting documentation for all work carried out, so you be confident your property meets all its legal obligations.
