Wow.

Are they getting consistently worse or are the standards rising.

My understanding is that a premises gets inspected, and an improvement notice is sent to the landlord.
One would hope that the house is brought up to spec at that point.

You get a chance to rectify alright but one fail will still go in the stats.

Figures will be fairly skewed as the councils will be testing the worse cases on average, inc. tenants/anonymous reports

I doubt it, what you do is introduce a new reg here and another reg there every so often. A new reg addition or subtle change is all it takes to put the majority of properties into the bold corner overnight.

House NCT’s basically, which in principle is a good idea, but surely you noticed that the NCT have a pattern to what is on special for failing or it seems when more than one head get to have comparative anecdotal grumble right?

There is the potential for another beautiful cartel literally.

I wonder is the testing-failure data available for public scrutiny and analysis, make sure there are no odd patterns of failure. I mean when you have the monopoly on testing, I assume the tender was for a single operator or is it multiple, anyone know that one? :whistle:

All new HAP properties get tested - Failure can be a result of some really strange items e.g. no document escape plan located in apt lobby.
