You can get a Gas Safe Registered technician to assess your appliance.
We use the Housing Health and Safety Rating System to assess the extent of hazards in a dwelling. This system is used to determine whether a home is in a state of disrepair.
The disrepair will need to be confirmed by a local authority Environmental Health officer and your landlord will be given an opportunity to improve the property before any points are awarded.
You will be given points if the property is seen to be in a state of ‘minor’ disrepair (and/or sharing kitchen or bathroom facilities) or in a state of ‘major’ disrepair (and/or lacking kitchen or bathroom facilities). More points will be awarded to those living in homes considered to be in a state of major disrepair.
