Thanks for the reply, maybe my landlord is simply not happy about storing so many cylinders !!!!

As long as the insurers know you have the oxygen there, there shouldn't be a problem.  If you didn't notify them and you made a claim they could deny the claim because you didn't tell them!   Also notify the local fire brigade, if they have a 'shout' they 'd far rather know if there is an additional risk on a premises BEFORE leaving the fire station, rather than a nasty surprise when they get there!

I get regular checks from the fire service and also the oxygen supplier (BOC) so they can make sure the tanks are stored safely.  If the insurance company are aware of this it should be fine.
