I would remove the bonding cables at the DB end with DB off and do a wandering lead test to the origin of the water and gas (or as near as possible to the origin, this way you can confirm that the cables are at least connected to something and not 'phantom bonds' which are just poked under the floor!. If that proves satisfactory, you can then give it an Observation and limitation on hte paperwork.

p.s. it is likely that if a boiler is cross bonded, you will get continuity between the ends of both bonds when removed.
 
Personally I wouldn't be happy not seeing where they are terminated. Without a visual you have no idea about the connection.

I have to agree, hence why I make the observations and limitations, the council will NOT like the idea of damaged flooring/boxing etc. to check a bod! Some of the tennants will claim for anything!
