  1. There may be a case in rented accommodation to look at this
    In the context of the home owner, this is potentially the ‘nanny state gone mad’. It would lead to a monopoly with split loyalties between the inspector and the person funding the inspection (MOT) i.e the home owner. Even the EU have not gone this far and surely there would need to be an element of harmonisation?
    Many homeowners are on the ‘breadline’ and simply could not afford these inspections. What would happen if the inspection was not done, would the owner be dragged through the courts or their houses declared ‘not fit for occupation’, which would then put even greater pressure on housing agencies to home these home owners?
    This seems to be an example of the gas and electrical contractors becoming self-serving to boost their work and profits!
