Situation.

Boiler broken.

Has been sporadically working since end of March.Now IDed.Tenancy ending end August.LL appears to be skint and new boiler quotes are £2500+ because of extra work that needs doing.How would one enforce repair?

Can one reasonably expect to get some compensation for no heating in county court or small claims?

Thanks in advance

Tell your Landlord you fill the boiler is unsafe and you will be contacting GAS SAFE about your concerns

Now see him jump.

No hot water or heating means the house is considered uninhabitable, IRRC. Get the council to earn their pensions by getting on the blower to environmental health.

Edit: that would be uninhabitable, not inhabitable, sorry!

I believe councils are quite good when it comes to these things. Partly because they are the people who have to clean up after dodgy landlords. But also because landlords are quite scared of them: they are not going away and eventually (after enough unpaid bills / fines) may take the property off their hands...
