W9 Gas Safety Certificates

A property will only be provided with the required W9 Gas Safety Certificates once your plumber has completed the requisite tests, and is satisfied that there are no outstanding issues. Once provided, a copy of the certificate should be passed on to your tenant within 28 days, and you should keep a copy yourself for at least two years.

Some landlords mistakenly think that if there are no gas appliances in a rented room then W9 Gas Safety Certificates are unnecessary. However, if the building in question contains a gas supply a valid certificate is still essential, and PGS is able to provide advice and guidance for you if you are uncertain of what your building needs.

PGS Gas Safe accredited professionals sometimes find that additional work needs to be done before they can award W9 Gas Safety Certificates to a rented property. Normally, they combine this work with the safety assessment, which can often be cheaper than a repeat visit.

Landlords are expected to be able to produce valid W9 Gas Safety Certificates when asked to do so. If you do not have a valid certificate you could face penalties that range from the annulment of insurance policies to a criminal conviction if the tenant’s safety is put at risk.

If a letting agent manages your property you should make sure it is clear who is responsible for gaining W9 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.
