Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

Colleagues, any ideas? I have a very difficult tenant who has refused access for my builders last year and now won’t allow access for an EICR on Monday.
It’s 2 days left before the deadline, and I’ve been trying to do repairs on the house along with doing the electrical cert. Could be that they are hiding things, but they say they have the right not to allow a workman now as my contractors are out of the area, and it’s lockdown.
They insist it’s their right to insist on a ‘local contractor’ due to safety and their mother is unwell.
I’m going to serve notice and will let environmental health know they are refusing access, but where do we stand with the new EICR deadline?
I’m sure councils are rubbing their hands with glee at things.
