    Health and safety housing report

    From safety aspect - assume you have fire/smoke alarms plus carbon monoxide detector.

    Just had a thought - is the heating system gravity fed from a loft tank (header tank) or a more modern sealed system with a red pressurised cylinder either inside boiler casing or next to it.

    If latter then make sure pressure is 1 bar on the dial - failing which open both taps on water inlet pipe and close off both taps when it reaches 1 bar. Order of opening/closing taps is not important - but both must be closed when finished that procedure.

    Can only suggest seeking local recommendations for Gas Safe engineer - most important is one who can quickly diagnose the exact problem - rather than guessing and sequentially changing components at your expense.

    Yes I have smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector. I will check the pressure. Thanks. yes its bit hit and miss with finding an engineer, particularly as I live miles away. Still has to be sorted. Have found out that Eon give grants, but you have to be a homeowner to get it, even though tenant does have the necessary pension credit

    I guess your tenant is forever grateful to find a private tenancy as most landlords (70%) do not take benefit tenants - at least not without a home owning guarantor.

    Does the property have an immersion heater for hot water as a back up?
