SE18 Gas Safety Certificates

Landlords and letting agents who do not have the required SE18 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.

Landlords cannot obtain SE18 Gas Safety Certificates for their properties until specific safety tests are completed, and the results are of an acceptable standard to your plumber. The tenant should then be issued with a copy of the certificate within 28 days and the landlord should store a copy for two years.

PGS plumbers sometimes find that extra maintenance work needs to be carried out in advance of issuing the SE18 Gas Safety Certificates for a rental dwelling. However, because our plumbers typically complete this work together with the gas safety evaluation, you save money on another call-out.

Although CORGI still exists as a membership organisation, the Gas Safe Register is now the professional register that any individual that works with gas must be on. All of PGS’s engineers are Gas Safe registered, and so are able to carry out the necessary checks for landlords and issue SE18 Gas Safety Certificates.

If a letting agent manages your property you should make sure it is clear who is responsible for gaining SE18 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.
