Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

We have just had the latest ridiculous service charge bill (e.g. £250 for common parts electricity when we have one light-bulb on a timer in the hall and have used 120kwh this year!) from our freeholder who we know to be a particularly bad one (Trustpilot shows 94% “BAD” / 1* reviews) when we received the first one last year they assured us they would provide proof of receipts and all outgoings etc, instead of that they have provided us with a letter from a chartered accountant that says along the lines of “we certify that we have seen all receipts etc and that these are all very reasonable prices”.
Having just looked up the name of the accountant, Google Maps shows that they are registered at the same address as the freeholder AND the managing agent!
My question is should we be arguing that we are entitled to see the accounts, or at least the receipts, and are they allowed to use an accountant that is clearly affiliated with them??
Hope someone can advise!
