DIY Doctor have launched a petition as part of their ‘Beat the Cowboy’ campaign. The aim is to start a National Building Register, which would be backed by the government. The register would be free for consumers to use and for tradesmen to join, but tradesmen would need to provide evidence of public liability insurance and membership of at least one trade organisation offering reference checks and arbitration services.
It would enable consumers to choose a tradesman safe in the knowledge that they are competent, reliable and trustworthy.
