hello can someone please tell me who is responsible for having the two log burners in my rented property serviced? I have the chimneys  swept annually as it’s in my tenency agreement?! I’ve been in my property 3 years and they’ve never been serviced, I have had to contact council to get on to him about other major repairs on the house as for the last 3 years he’s just fobbed me off, I would have the stoves serviced but I’m a single mum of 3 and don’t have the money, he’s saying it is completely my responsibility, I’m afraid I have no trust in him anymore.

IT’s the landlord’s responsibility to repair and maintain the property, including all equipment and installations. This includes servicing appliances, performing annual gas safety checks, etc. 

You’re not responsible for this, your landlord is. If you’ve already had the council involved, I suggest you use the same procedure.
