W14 Gas Safety Certificates

When a PGS technician goes to a rented dwelling to undertake a gas safety inspection, certain repairs may need to be completed before W14 Gas Safety Certificates can be awarded. Typically, this can be done at the same time as the inspection, often reducing the price.

If a letting agent manages your property you should make sure it is clear who is responsible for gaining W14 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.

To be awarded with W14 Gas Safety Certificates, dwellings must first pass an inspection by a certified technician. Once granted, copies of the certificates have to be provided to the tenant within 28 days and the landlord needs to, for at least two years, keep a copy too.

Landlords that do not have the required W14 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.

Buildings that contain a gas supply and appliances in which certain rooms are rented out require W14 Gas Safety Certificates, even if there is no gas supply in the rented rooms. To make sure you have the right certification in place, you should contact PGS for confirmation.
