SM6 Gas Safety Certificates

A property will only be provided with the required SM6 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.

The punishment for not having official SM6 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.

When a PGS technician goes to a rented dwelling to undertake a gas safety inspection, certain repairs may need to be completed before SM6 Gas Safety Certificates can be awarded. Typically, this can be done at the same time as the inspection, often reducing the price.

Gas safety rules can be difficult to interpret, particularly in cases where only certain rooms in a property with a gas supply are let. PGS has a thorough understanding of the gas safety rules and can therefore help you find out whether your property requires SM6 Gas Safety Certificates.

CORGI is now only a membership organisation, and it is Gas Safe registered status that now signifies that an engineer has the qualifications needed to work with gas products and issue SM6 Gas Safety Certificates. PGS are able to supply landlords with Gas Safe qualified professionals to carry out gas services and safety certification.
