SE12 Gas Safety Certificates

There can be major consequences for you as a landlord if you do not have legitimate SE12 Gas Safety Certificates in place for your properties. Consequences may include withdrawal of insurance and, in some cases, even criminal prosecution where the tenant’s safety is put in danger from carbon monoxide-related leaks.

When a PGS engineer visits a rental property in order to complete a gas safety check, they will inspect all gas equipment for, amongst other things, signs of leaks, misuse, poor aeration, and flue efficiency including rust removal. SE12 Gas Safety Certificates will be awarded once these inspections are complete.

UK law dictates that properties which are leased must be gas safety checked annually by a Gas Safe authorised technician. With PGS, our Gas Safe authorised plumbers can complete these inspections in addition to being able to award SE12 Gas Safety Certificates accordingly, to landlords.

In order for a property to receive its SE12 Gas Safety Certificates it must first pass certain tests administered by an engineer. Once the engineer is convinced of the property’s gas safety, they will furnish the landlord with copies of the certificates, one for your tenant to be handed over within 28 days and one for you to file for 24 months.

Regardless of whether it is a rental agent or you as the landlord who appoints the Gas Safe sanctioned plumber to provide SE12 Gas Safety Certificates, you should always obtain duplicates of all details of the work completed, according to the Health and Safety Executive. Furthermore, the contract between you and the agent should make it apparent who is legally responsible for scheduling tests and servicing appointments.
