Sadly, I think you are wrong.
The check might include a test for gas leaks (a DIY task requiring a bit of clear pipe with water in) but almost certainly won't include a gas analyser check on flue products or a check on things like cylinder hose age. It won't involve any sort of appliance service (none is needed).
Similarly, it may include an earth leakage test and earth continuity test on the mains, but it won't include any worthwhile tests on the charging circuits, on the condition of the 12v wiring or the state of the batteries.
It will mostly involve prodding the interior under the window openings with a £10 damp meter. You can do that yourself.
It would have to be tugged with a white Tranny on Irish plates.

It would not take much of an effort for a Forum such as this to start a nationwide list of recommended Habitation Testers NOTE I did say Tests not checks which are IMO worthless, a recommended list of tests could be required and I am sure there would be many self employed chaps willing to join a scheme with the weight of a quality forum behind them it could go from strength to strength.
Whilst I have always done my own tests there are many that would prefer this to be done for them.
Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.
