If it is technically possible to fit a gas boiler in the flat to the heating
system, then the tank can go.
You should check the lease/service conditions for the block though as some
contracts prevent the fitting of gas boilers.
No. The tank can be removed. A properly installed combi system requires no
tanks at all. You need to check your mains water flow rate to ensure it is
viable for a mains pressure hot water system. Also, check you are allowed
gas services, as suggested by another poster.
Another tip, if the tank was shared it quite possible that no-one else is no
using it as in my relative's case.
So tell the water company that you want a meter but as you're on a shared
supply they won't be able to fit one but will give you the statutory
discount instead. They most likely won't even come out to look.
Then you go ahead and fit the boiler and remove the tank.....
You'll get the water bill discount for the foreseeable future.
This does work I can vouch for it.
