What happens if a BER of a New Dwelling does not meet Building Regulations?

All new dwellings must comply with the Building Regulations Including Part L which relates to energy. If a registered BER assessor finds that a new dwelling does not comply with the regulations, he or she is required to advise his/her client that they appear to be in breach of Regulations, explain the issues that have resulted in the apparent breach, encourage them in as strong terms as possible to rectify issues. He or she should also advise his or her client that the new owner will have a right of access to this information.
