I have a converted one bedroom, reception room, kitchen and bathroom flat which has been occupied since the early 1980s by a statutory tenant (SPT). The flat was renovated in the 1980s and provided with a new hot water tank (modern insulated tank with an immersion heater).
The tenant in 1997, without consent, installed a gas boiler and radiator central heating system. There is a registered rent in place and this ignores any value attributable to the central heating in the rent. The central heating boiler was installed in the cellar of the property which is not let to the tenant. I have just received an invoice (again without any notice or forewarning) that a new boiler has been installed, and presumably they are looking for a payment from the landlord.
My view is that as it was their boiler in the first place, why should I play for the cost of replacement. Am I wrong in taking this attitude ?
In this instance, whose responsibility should the replacement boiler be?
