Not entirely clear what you are asking, but I want to mention that landlords have a legal duty to have boilers and other gas appliances serviced by a Corgi-registered gas engineer every 12 months: and to give the tenants a record of this. If they haven’t done this you may want to remind them of their duty, and/or tell the Health and Safety Executive if they don’t act.

Boiler nearly killed me
Do you have a gas safety certificate ? As Pivot said, your landlord needs to perform annual gas safety checks every 12 months by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. From what I get, that likely hasn’t happened in a while. Check in your documents for a gas safety certificate. If you don’t find it, call the landlord immediately and give them somewhat of a week TOPS before going to the Environmental Health Department.
Please check our article on gas safety – http://www.thetenantsvoice.co.uk/advice_from_us/gas-safety-check/
If your landlord doesn’t have a gas safety certificate, it’s likely they haven’t done other management work as well. Check the following:
You’re likely able to seek compensation, but that happens in the courts only – so consult a solicitor or at least Shelter.
