I recently purchased a property, this property had been completely refurbished, new plumbing, radiators, windows, wiring etc and the seller provided all certificates. The night we moved in we ran the hot tap and the radiators started getting hot, the very next day we called British Gas and booked an engineer for a few days time, when he arrived he said the boiler is in a poor state and needs replacing due to the amount of faults/leaks/ condition and the problems it has.. The engineer stated that these faults would not have developed over night and would have been over a period of time and that it would not be financially economical for him to fix all the faults but was able to do a temporary fix so we can function.

The seller stated in the Property Information Form that "the central heating system is in good working order" when clearly is it is not. can we make the seller pay for the replacement boiler that we need or contribute towards this?
