Gas Safety checks are the same in England as the rest of the UK, with the requirement for annual checks by a registered gas engineer. 

What would you expect to see on a Landlord’s Gas Safety Record?

As 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 is a safe condition, so many proprietary forms also include the facility for the registered engineer to record the results of pipework integrity tests which indicate whether or not the pipework installation is safe.

All Gas work is carried out by a Gas Safe engineer.
