noc from landlord no objection for reopen gas meter
You do not because there is a check valve in the filler to prevent gas spillage in case of a rollover.

If the lease agreement states that the tenant should switch the account to their name and pay the gas bill then the tenant should pay the landlord back. If there was no written agreement, or understanding, that the tenant pay the gas bill then you could try filing a complaint with the town, housing court, landlord-tenant agency, etc., if the landlord simply stopped providing heat and hot water. If the understanding was that the tenant pay their gas, they never switched the account to their name and the landlord didn't notice for seven months, then the tenant should start paying the gas bill and hope the landlord doesn't sue them for all the prior gas charges.
The fundamental distinction between landlord and homeowner boiler service insurance is that the insurance should cover the landlord’s requirement to keep an annual Landlord Gas Safety Record. This is something we can offer with all of our landlord services. For your convenience, we can provide electronic copies of the certificates of all our heating engineers registered with Gas Safe.
You should contact the gas company very soon. Gas is dangerous if not propdealt with.
You need to communicate with the landlord to straighten out the situation as quickly and painlessly as possible. You may pay the gas bill and deduct that amount from your next month's rent. However, a landlord that doesn't pay such an important bill shouldn't have tenants. I know it's expensive, but moving sounds like a good idea. ------------------------------------------------- If your lease says that the gas is paid as part of your rent then the contract for gas to the property would be in your landlord's name and your landlord is responsible for it. If in these circumstances he is not paying the gas bill, then you need to go and see an attorney (lawyer / solicitor) for advice. If however the gas contract is in your name, then you are responsible for the payments despite what you may think your tenancy agreement says.
Normally not: every bill in the tenant's name is that tenant's responsibility, not of the landlord.
in British Columbia it trades lumber, fish, coal, natural gas
Columbia, South Carolina? Tourist centers, gas stations, book stores.
You can not as the tank filler neck has a check valve in case of rollover to prevent gasoline from coming out of the tank.
This is a good question for your local building inspector, because the answer depends on what the landlord plans to do. I asked the chief building inspector for a large Massachusetts city. If this work involves the fuel delivery system at all (the supply pipe, burners, ignition system), that work must be done by a licensed gasfitter. If it involves changing ducts or flues, the landlord might be able to do that himself, but he should get a building permit. If the work is as simple as changing a filter, anyone can do that, and no permit is required.
