A building industry scandal regulators want to ignore

Governments are ignoring a review they commissioned which finds homeowners are being ripped-off as the building industry flouts laws aimed at reducing energy bills and improving the energy efficiency of new homes.

A review of the energy efficiency requirements applying to new homes has found that there is widespread flouting of the rules, which means homeowners are buying houses that fall well short of the 5- and 6-star efficiency levels they have been promised. In addition, while this is well known by government authorities, they have shown little interest in addressing this widespread breaking of the law.
