Gas safety record and information
What documentation can I expect from a gas engineer when they have carried out work in my home? After having fitted serviced or safety checked an appliance is all dependent upon the purpose and the type of work carried out. But the only documentation that is required by law is, a landlord Gas Safety record. This it will detail exactly what checks the engineer has carried out and if the appliances checked meet all the gas safety standards.
There is a legal duty on owners of residential rented properties to have annual safety checks carried out on the gas appliances they provide for their tenants’ use.
These safety checks must be carried out by a gas safe registered engineer and the results are recorded in detail on a landlord gas Safety Record form, with copies provided to the landlord and the tenant. If you’re renting a property from a private landlord, the council, a housing association or any other landlord, they should provide you with a copy of the record within 28 days of the check being completed. They also need to give a copy of the latest record to new tenants upon the start of their tenancy.

What would I expect to see on a Landlord’s Gas Safety Record?
You should see at a minimum, the record needs to contain…
- A description and location of each appliance flue checked
- Name, registration number and signature of the engineer who carried out the check
- Date on which the check was carried out
- The address of the property where the appliance – flue is installed
- The name and address of the landlord (or their agent where applicable)
- Any safety defect identified and any action required or taken to rectify it
- Confirmation of the results of the operational safety checks carried out on the appliances.
Landlords also have a legal duty to maintain pipework in a safe condition; so many proprietary forms also include the facility for the gas engineer to record the results of pipework integrity tests, which indicate whether or not the pipework installation is safe.
It’s in your best interests to let a Gas Safe registered engineer in to carry out a check, but don’t forget to ask to see their gas safe ID card first.
