Boiler problem? Before booking a repair, make sure you have checked the following:

  • Which boiler do you have?
  • Are your other gas appliances working?
  • Do you have power to the boiler, check your electricity meter?
  • Is the pressure gauge in the right position, between 1 and 2? If not, can you top it up?
  • Have you reset your boiler?

Gas safety

It is essential that your gas appliances are working safely, this is for the safety of you, your family and your neighbours.

We are required by law to carry out a gas safety check. All tenants' gas appliances have to be checked at least once a year. Your tenancy agreement requires you to cooperate with the safety programme by giving access to your home for these important gas safety checks which are quick and easy to carry out.
