Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Do the Gas people say that you should get a new boiler or the existing one is sufficient please?
The Council can't make you do anything
At worst the tenant can try and take you to Court because the Landlord and Tenant Act says you must provide hot water and heating.
The Court will appoint a joint expert to produce a report
If the report says it is inadequate then you will lose.
If the report says the boiler is fine then you will win
But the Council can't make you do anything - it would be down to a Court if the tenant brought a claim
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
The tenant can TRY and claim. But it really depends on what the engineer says.
If it is faulty then - maybe yes, if they have sufferd
If not faulty - then no
Does that clarify?
The boiler is not faulty but we cannot get all rads to 21 degrees and everyone if is flumoxed other than it probably lies with either house movement or inconsistent pipework.
Can anyone make me refurb the entire house to accommodate a new system or is sufficient to add additional free standing radiators? No one seems to be able to clarifythis
Please take a moment to leave feedback before you go today
