Word in my shell-like from a reliable source informs me that Domestic Energy Assessors (DEA) have been stripped of their licence to operate by their accreditation scheme for gross negligence.

Drive-by assessments

One report is of a DEA who allegedly didn't even show-up to some properties - fake photographs were used in their lodgement.

In fact, it's not even clear if the DEA even had the courtesy of driving past the property!

The best one I've heard recently was the DEA who turned up without a ladder and had to be leant one by the owner!

At least he looked in the loft but he failed to get the correct construction type - he thought the stone was brick!!

Apparently he also argued fairly forcably with the owner when he was sitting outside a property 10 miles away accusing the owner of failing to meet him!

I have yet to find him.............!

It's a step in the right direction and about time the chaff was seperated from the wheat.
Maybe they should also think of reducing the amount of accreditation bodies too.
After that how about tackling the hip providers and estate agents with their mark ups of between 50 to 150%.
