I have always understood the landlord is responsible for servicing the boiler. However, after 3 days of no heating my landlord has told me that I am obligated to pay and organise for the boiler to be annually serviced. I have looked at my tenancy agreement but can’t see boiler service.

Nope. The landlord is responsible for servicing, maintaining and repairing the boiler in your property. 

Don’t let them pull your leg. 

I suggest you download our guide – Getting repairs to heating and hot water installation in rented properties. 

Read it and use the template letters to communicate with your landlord. Make sure they know you’re serious about this and that you’re going to the council if they don’t do their part of the deal.
