If you are suffering from boiler problems in your rented property, you need to inform your landlord as quickly as possible. By law, they are required to provide a home that is not in a state of disrepair whether they be private, council/local authorities or housing associations. If they fail to act after you’ve reported a boiler defect, you could have grounds to take legal action.
So, if you’re living in a home that is showing signs of boiler disrepair and you’ve reported the issue but your landlord has yet to take any action (within a reasonable amount of time) you could be eligible to make a claim to get your home fixed. Any boiler defect can prove extremely dangerous and could even lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
