W3 Gas Safety Certificates

To work with gas, and award W3 Gas Safety Certificates, to rental dwellings, engineers now have to be Gas Safe approved – as a result, CORGI is now just a membership organisation. All PGS plumbers are Gas Safe approved and able to serve all your gas-related requirements.

In order for a property to receive its W3 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.

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 W3 Gas Safety Certificates accordingly, to landlords.

Buildings with a gas supply, where some of the rooms are rented out, need W3 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.

The punishment for not having official W3 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.
