    So after ignoring their letters for over a year, the inspectors finally came knocking at my door.

    They spent a long time trying to get details and be allowed entry to the house. Very pushy, very rude, tried to convince me that I 'had' to let them in.

    Apparently I can expect a visit from a "3rd party" to come and inspect next time. lol.

    I love it when they lie to you because most people don't know they don't have to.

    Police do it all the time as well.

    Haha, I did chuckle to myself as he was fumbling for his id card.

    Then it went along the lines of:

    You need to let me in to check
    No I dont
    Why not
    Because I dont let strangers wander round my house
    But Ive shown you my card
    So? Would you let me in your house just because I showed you a card?
    ...
    ...
    Youve got to let me in.

    They need to have a warrant from the courts and two (i think two) police officers present before they can legally enter your house.

    Great to give it back to them as good as they do. I remember years of seeing hundreds of their ******* letters trying to spook students everywhere for money. Scum.

    If you do not watch live TV, then you do not need a licence.

    There is also an exemption, whereby if you are a student living away from you parents, then you do not need a licence aslong as you are using a portable device (a laptop on a wifi network running off its battey would count) and as long as your parents have a licence.
