The cabinet around the heater is for safety. This is the way to install water boilers if there isn’t a wall cavity for them. 

Can’t you just ask the landlord for a key in case there is an emergency and you need to access the boiler. On the other hand, there should be a separate fuse in the fusebox for the boiler, which you can shut off at any moment, should there be any need to.
