My landlord had a surveyor come out to our boiler as the pressure kept dropping and had been doing for sometime. When looking at the boiler the surveyor (from a company called holdcrofts) immediately condemned the boiler, for several reasons 1) the flew was not attached properly to the boiler (the bracket was bein held on with such tape) 2) the flew was not high enough out of the building 3) if the flew was at the correct height (outside)it would be too close to wall and to an opening window. The surveyor told me that with cases this bad they have to report both the landlord and the person who signed the boiler off as fit. He asked to see my annual certificate for the boiler which I didn’t have not have I never had in the 6yrs of living here as we have never had the boiler serviced. Myself and my partner tried to contact our landlord to inform him of this n resorted to sending him a text message asking him to ring us as the boiler had been condemned. 4 days later our landlord finally rang us back saying he will send someone out to get the boiler up and running until he can get a new boiler. We have 3 young children with no heating or hot water and don’t know when will have any. The surveyor also informed me our landlord should provide us with electric heaters for every room until our boiler is replaced….we haven’t had any from our landlord. It’s now been 8days since are boiler was condemned and our landlord has been nowhere near and rang us the once. Where do we stand? Do we have to continuing to pay rent?
