W13 Gas Safety Certificates

Rented dwellings must be successful in several tests before W13 Gas Safety Certificates can be granted. These tests can be performed by a PGS professional, and include testing for gas discharges, errors in fitting, unsafe workings, ventilation, pressures, and issues with the removal of the products of rust.

If a letting agent manages your property you should make sure it is clear who is responsible for gaining W13 Gas Safety Certificates from a Gas Safe endorsed technician. However, the Health and Safety Executive suggest that the property owner should also keep copies of all gas safety repair or maintenance so you know your property is legally safe.

Landlords will be issued with W13 Gas Safety Certificates once the necessary checks have been carried out to their engineer’s satisfaction. As a landlord you should give a copy to your tenant within 28 days of it being issued, and you will need to keep a copy for yourself for two years.

Landlords are obliged by law to make sure their rented properties with a gas supply are examined by a Gas Safe endorsed engineer every year. With our sufficiently qualified and Gas Safe endorsed engineers, PGS is well placed to conduct the essential examinations and grant W13 Gas Safety Certificates.

In order to be able to grant rental properties the required W13 Gas Safety Certificates, and undertake gas product repairs and maintenance, plumbers must now be Gas Safe, rather than CORGI, registered. All of PGS’s plumbers are Gas Safe certified, and can therefore support all of a landlord’s gas safety needs.
