If your chimney is swept thoroughly and is in good condition following a smoke test and not letting POCs into property this is fine i would say...

If your existing liner, clay or whatever, is in good condition and has passed a PRESSURE TEST then generally no problems. However the industry would prefer at least a flex liner to be fitted in older properties for the good flow of gases and so proper integrity of the chimney is maintained.
