UB1 Gas Safety Certificates

To be eligible for UB1 Gas Safety Certificates, rented properties must undergo a range of inspections. These inspections, which can be performed by one of our PGS plumbers, identify many things such as signs of leaks, inappropriate usage, poor aeration, ineffective removal of combustion products by the flue and incorrect operating or idle pressures.

When one of our engineers visits a rental property in order to carry out a gas safety check, it might be necessary to repair or service an appliance before UB1 Gas Safety Certificates can be issued. This can usually be carried out during the same visit, at a reduced cost.

If as a landlord you are unable to provide valid UB1 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.

If your rental agent arranges for a Gas Safe authorised specialist to assess your property, and supply UB1 Gas Safety Certificates, this should be stated in your contract with the agent. The Health and Safety Executive also advises you to request copies of all maintenance information so that you can be confident your property is safe and law abiding.

In Great Britain, landlords must ensure that a gas safety test is completed by a Gas Safe qualified professional every year for all rental housing. PGS’s Gas Safe engineers are capable of completing these tests as well as issuing landlords with UB1 Gas Safety Certificates.
