How quickly does the boiler lose pressure, is it over the course of a hour day or week?
This would indicate either a faulty pressure valve or leak (such as a failed joint) in the sealed hot water \ central heating system.

Depending on how quickly you lose pressure, and if its only when the boiler is running or all the time, this will give an indication as to your options for repair and how you can start to locate the fault.

I assume there arent any damp or wet patches on the walls, ceiling or floors which you indicate a leaking pipe or radiator?

Thanks
