I am in favour of new regulations which could help to save lives but I don’t understand why only the lives of tenants seem to matter in the eyes of the law.
I don’t have gas at home but I do have electricity (yes even in mid Norfolk LOL) and I also have an electrical safety certificate dated just a few months ago for my own home.
If proposed new regulations for electrical testing in residential properties comes about then I hope they are imposed on all property owners and not just landlords.
Laws need to be applied equally.
If the lawmakers don’t care about the safety of children living with irresponsible parents who don’t get their homes checked for gas and now electricity then why do they care so much about tenants living in rental properties?
How many homeowners get an annual gas safety check?
Why shouldn’t owner occupiers be made legally responsible for protecting the lives of their children, neighbours, emergency services who try to rescue them when their house explodes in a ball of flames and of course their own lives?
What’s good for the goose ….
