Housing Executive tenants across Northern Ireland who do not allow an annual safety check of gas boilers are in danger of having their supply cut off.
The Housing Executive is urging tenants to ensure that its contractors are given access to properties to carry out the annual check, warning that it will disconnect the gas supply where access is prohibited.
Gerry Flynn, Director of Landlord Services, said:
“The safety of our tenants is paramount and we are urging our tenants to work with our contractors to ensure that the safety checks of gas boilers are carried out. Tenants may also face a charge for reconnection.”
