All, just been round a rented property and noticed that the flue has an Icicle hanging from it. It is quite a long flue run ie. not just straight out the wall, comes out about 40cm or so due to roof overhang. Is it something to be concerned about? I thought flue was supposed to slope towards the boiler. Thanks in advance

If the Icicle is in danger of falling down onto someone's head from a great height it may be a cause for concern. Otherwise don't worry.

Friend of the LL doing a job round there. Tks
Best let the landlord know,you have seen the situation and have some responsibility to avoid a personal claim.

tenants love to claim when necessary :p no win no fee :sick:
But is it a problem? So far it seems not an issue, so let LL know who gets a gassafe out who says have better things in life to worry about. CP12 recently carried out but not whilst it was minus 4 out :) BTW boiler is on GND flr so no impaling claims from anyone
