DEAs Alex Field of Precision Energy Assessors (AKA Energywise) and Jackie Oliver of Jackie Oliver & Co Estate Agents (AKA THI) are two widely-known women in the DEA community - they know their minds and don't mind speaking them, freely.

Which is just as well because there has been much to speak about this week, with less than a month to go before the final staged roll-out of Home Information Packs engulf one and two bedroom homes in England and Wales.

Listen: DEA Roundtable - Full-On HIPs

Many thanks to both Alex and Jackie.


Loads of news since the last podcast, we've had many highs and lows in the past week:

AHIPP: Shame!

Quidos v HES Ltd: we have a recorded statement (transcript) from Philip Salaman (Managing Director) on the ongoing troubles between HES and Quidos

Habitus: the controversial EPC panel appoints "crisis management" consultants, Interco Associates.

Grant Shapps: Tory Shadow Housing Minister pops into the Home Inspector Forum and calls for a meeting with Domestic Energy Assessors.

Gordon Brown's speech and new green policy announcements: (I used an incorrect name to refer to the new Green Homes Service). What about privacy? What about compulsion?

Working Lunch: A tip o' the hat to David Thompson and Chris Evans (Training Providers slammed in the media)

HIPs: Lots of interesting HIP talk plus, of course, the full market roll-out of Home Information Packs (HIPs) on 14th December

Oh yeah, much much more...

Alex pimped the Low Carbon Group (LCG) website (no longer active):

LCG is a not-for-profit organisation of Domestic Energy Assessors and Home Inspectors
