Hi not sure if I am posting on the right spot here but help me out....
Just ad foxtel install cable in loft an they noticed a heating burning smell they told me that the system for heating the water is up there and it looks to have blackened the lagging in the loft an there is no flu or vent for the heat to escape....potential fire hazard.
I contacted the landlord via estate agents who said there is nothing they can do been up there plenty of times an it is hot but nothing wrong.
Even I am a woman and know that heating systems need to be vented, feel sick the trusses are wooden my kids bedrooms are underneath it an it's mad hot outside.
Is there any plumbers or wha not on here who know the Aussie rules on this sort of stuff, estate agents said there is nothing they can do without anything further to go on landlord not budging.
They said if I can get someone who knows about these things put it in a letter they can sort it out.
Very worried Nicola
