Retro fit inspection hatches for flue.

3 replies 70 views
Hi all. I really could do with some advice on an expensive problem my husband and I are facing.
To outline the problem, my boiler has been declared 'at risk' because though my boiler is situated within my Leasehold flat, the flue runs through the void space above the communal porch before it reaches outside with no inspection hatches.
From what I've read the hatches should have been retrofitted back in 2013 by either the previous owner or the managing agency. The year before we bought the flat.
Now we seem to be stuck in a position where to change the boiler and retrofit the hatches will cost over £5000 plus managing agent fees.

Is there any assistance available to be able to make my boiler or new boiler compliant/insurable?
