Customer Question

We are buying a house and after viewing the third time we noticed the boiler was leaking. The seller now says this is because she turned the water off the day before and pressurized boilers do this although she didn't know at the time. Is this true or should we get someone out to check it. Its a 2008 combo boiler I think if this helps?

Boiler taps can leak when they have been turned off after not being touched for a while.Was it a tap directly under the boiler (as in connected to it)?
