For everyone's information, the long running case of a Liverpool City Council vs a local landlord regarding the type of heating, efficiency and installation within privately rented properties in England and Wales has finally been resolved after over 4 years. I have a copy to read but unfortunately can't provide a link to it yet as I'm unable to find it on the Court website decisions pages. It's case reference number is MAN/00BY/HIN/2014/0011.

It revolved around uneconomical and incorrectly specified panel convector heaters being installed in a flat and was subject to an improvement notice from Liverpool City Council which the landlord successfully appealed to the RPTS. Liverpool City Council then appealed the appeal to the Upper Lands Tribunal which found in favour of the Council and ordered the RPTS to rehear the case. This took place on 17th June 2015 and in effect has outlawed all poor heating systems, those that have not been correctly specified as to being appropriate to the layout, construction and design of the dwelling and the infamous convector heaters in England and Wales. Convector heaters are not acceptable as a primary/main heat source and rightly so. They should be used as supplemental/auxiliary heaters only.
