The HAP inspectors seem according to people who have had inspections for HAP - insist on things like ventilation been up to 2018 building regs.
A key issue appears to be that HAP inspectors want wall ventilation in each room. So to comply - you'd have to spend a lot of money to drill holes for this ventilation.
Whats not clear is whether there are specific official guidelines or rules saying that all HAP properties must hit 2018 regs.
Or if this is inspectors going over the top in their application of the rules.
There is a 22 page checklist apparently.
Further clarification is needed as the justification for 2018 regs needs to be explained.
