EPC clearly wrong so can Assessor be made to change it once issued?

I can only speak for from the point of view of the dwellings. The EPC only needs limited information when there is an inhabited area below - either "Another dwelling below" (eg another flat) or "Above a partially heated space" (eg shops or offices). There is no provision for entering the insulation thickness etc into the EPC in these particular cases. I only do domestic EPC's so I don't know how the EPC's for the shops would be entered. Hope that helps.... Read More

What is wrong with what I said? As far as I can tell, you are agreeing with me!

Of course you should have a bathroom fan (building regs demand them these days) - but the bathroom isn't the only source of moisture - cooking, breathing, drying clothes all contribute and you can't expect a bathroom fan to deal with all those unless it is permanently on.

The warmer the air the more moisture it can hold - and consequently there is more moisture available to condense out when it finds an area below the dew point. Getting the moist air out of the property (through ventilation) is the most effective way to prevent mould growth. Obviously this is not going to be acceptable to the tenants in the winter months, hence the suggestions to fit positive pressure ventilators which can do the job without causing too much in the way of drafts...
