Are land owners under a legal obligation to provide hot water facilities for residents in UK?

I live in a large block of 176 flats owned by "Lambeth Borough Council" in London, UK. The majority of the flats are rented as "council flats", though some are leasehold. The building is serviced by a communal boiler that provides heating and hot water to each flat. Leaseholders (and possibly council tenants too) pay a monthly service charge to cover the costs of maintenance, hot water, heating, waste management, concierge etc. The question is whether the owner is legally obligated to provide the aforementioned facilities, our the residents should pay the costs of maintenance.
