House holders to be represented when regulations formulated

Comment 7th July 2010

An example is the Building regulation changes. These now dictate that if a gas boiler is replaced then a more efficient condensing boiler must be used; that seems reasonable. What is not reasonable is the householder having to pay for additional work (plumbing and decoration) required to meet the separate heating zone requirements. The householder is poorly represented when new regulations are being formulated compared to the companies that make money out of such regulations.

Why does this matter?

Reduce cost to home owners. Reduce risk that unscrupulous traders will exploit vulnerable home owners using this and similar regulations to increase costs.
