E5 Gas Safety Certificates

Buildings with a gas supply, where some of the rooms are rented out, need E5 Gas Safety Certificates, despite the fact the rented areas may not contain gas heating. PGS offers landlords and agents guidance on whether or not they need to get their buildings gas safety accredited, so if you are ever unsure simply get in touch.

If your rental agent arranges for a Gas Safe authorised specialist to assess your property, and supply E5 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.

With PGS, E5 Gas Safety Certificates for one or two appliances cost 90, and our Gas Safe accredited plumbers can provide supplementary certificates for 25 per appliance. Any maintenance work undertaken before the certificates can be provided is charged separately and in addition to the cost of the certificates.

Landlords are legally required to have all rented dwellings with a gas supply inspected by a Gas Safe specialist every 12 months. PGS can provide a Gas Safe certified specialist to undertake these inspections and supply E5 Gas Safety Certificates as needed.

The punishment for not having official E5 Gas Safety Certificates can range from fines to a criminal conviction depending on the consequences. As a landlord you are responsible for the safety of your tenant and if the tenant is in any way injured as a result of an unsafe appliance, you are responsible in the eyes of the law and could therefore face prosecution.
