    Can we ask what legal reason? Thing is there are enough things like pumps etc for you to be able to comply with ease nowadays

    Yes,its a property i bought 2 years ago from auction,previous repossession all boilers,bogs,baths and sinks were already removed.with gas/water/electric disconnected in the pavement. as an investment i was happy to leave it vacant and watch the £££ build up but now needs action due to complaints from neighbours but the squatters are happy there.
    The wall where the boiler flues exit is in direct line of sight with a historic monastery and flue discharge is over their properties large garden.when discussing initial plans with the council they produced a previous planning consent document(2 years old) which states planning consent is approved for a drawing that shows my wall with 3 flues and states no excess visible plume or other alterations allowed.
    i found a note in the planning paperwork from the monastery architects that states no excessive plume will be allowed over their clients property.thus the council are happy with a non condensing boilers.
    so the previous assessment is still in place and council consent already exists.
    I have the planning consent form in front of me now.

    anyone interested in buying this property in kensington london.

    :(

    You mean your property has no other walls, that don't exit over somebody else's land? or you mean there is some special reason why a flue can't use one of the other walls?

    In theory you cant vent over anyones boundary even with a standard boiler no matter how big there garden but if you have it in writing who are you to argue ,
    But have you thought of a roof termination if that is possible

    johnD yes the £££ have mounted up quite considerably even after paying for property insurance,painting outside of property and security company to shutter up windows and doors with metal grilles.

    gas112 its a 3 storey london property. 13 foot high ceilings.

    Some boilers will give you a 10m plus flue length but will work out far more expensive at around £25 a meter length and then prob scaffolding to get on roof .
    So dont blame you for accepting there plans allowing to vent over boundary .
    The barrack room lawyers will be on later so be prepared ;)

    Loft installation and roof discharge comes to mind !

    One wonders why you want three boilers too!

    I noticed in Switzerland that they poke the flue up the chimney, where the plume seems fine, even on old stone houses with the boiler in the cellar.

    But I hear that in UK you are not allowed to have flue joints inaccessible in a chimney.

    you can use an apprpriate flexible chimney flue, no joints.

    then it sounds like a good solution, in an old house which still has disused chimneys.
