"Yes there are plenty of options available you'd just need to work out the amount of radiators in the property for a KW rating also find if the boiler is a system boiler or not I.e just for heating . As there are boilers that do both heating and hot water."

"Don’t believe you will be able to replace one with back boiler. So only leaves the other one. You would need to find out why both fires were condemned first. Realistically you would need a gas engineer to come out and have a look as to what can be done. Personally I would go electric"
