RM13 Gas Safety Certificates

Under UK law, landlords are required to have a gas safety check fulfilled in all properties with a gas supply on an annual basis and by a Gas Safe registered technician. At PGS, our technicians are Gas Safe accredited, and can therefore complete these safety checks and award RM13 Gas Safety Certificates.

In cases where rental accommodation is managed by an agent, the contract you have should make it obvious who is responsible for acquiring RM13 Gas Safety Certificates from a Gas Safe approved engineer. Regardless of who assumes this responsibility, the Health and Safety Executive advises that you obtain copies of all tests and services performed on the building to ensure all legal requirements are met.

UK law requires that all rental properties must pass examinations by a professional plumber before RM13 Gas Safety Certificates can be issued. PGS can provide this service and complete these examinations, which include checking for gas leaks, unsafe installations, a build-up of combustion outputs due to inadequate ventilation and abnormal operating or standing pressures.

Landlords and letting agents who do not have the required RM13 Gas Safety Certificates can face tough penalties. These will usually include the invalidation of your insurance and may even extend to criminal prosecution for manslaughter in carbon monoxide poisoning, or gas explosion, cases, as you are liable for the safety of your tenants.

Buildings that contain a gas supply and appliances in which certain rooms are rented out require RM13 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.
