I am on a communial aetial where i live, and today i have no signal for any channels.
is this likely to be a fault with the aerial , or is there a transmitter problem ?
Also , is it possible to retune to another transmitter , as the Thetford one has limited channels.

Sue: No problems are reported for the Thetford or Tacolneston transmitters. (See the BBC Reception Test link next to your post.) My best guess is that the power to the distribution amplifier in your building has failed. Check with other residents to see if they're having problems.

In either case, contact your landlord or agent. See PARAS - Professional Aerial Riggers Against The Sharks for thoughts on who to talk to.

You could also talk to them about getting the aerial changed to receive from Tacolneston instead of Thetford, though they may want to charge for this and all the users would have to agree to it: all users will have to retune after it's done.
