Uxbridge Gas Safety Certificates
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 Uxbridge Gas Safety Certificates.
Letting agents and landlords sometimes have trouble remembering when their Uxbridge Gas Safety Certificates need updating, or when the yearly safety assessment of their property is due. To make your life easier, PGS provides a service whereby you are automatically contacted when these checks are due.
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 Uxbridge Gas Safety Certificates, then you can contact PGS for further advice.
Landlords that do not have the required Uxbridge Gas Safety Certificates in place can face significant punishment. For example, your building and contents insurance may be annulled and if your neglect causes a tenant to die of carbon monoxide poisoning, you could be prosecuted.
In order for a property to receive its Uxbridge Gas Safety Certificates it must first pass certain tests administered by an engineer. Once the engineer is convinced of the property’s gas safety, they will furnish the landlord with copies of the certificates, one for your tenant – to be handed over within 28 days – and one for you to file for 24 months.
