Triathlon building safety

The safety of our customers is our priority.

In this section you can find out more about our building safety programme, the government's response to Grenfell Tower, EWS1 forms and some of the issues that have come about as an indirect result, particularly those affecting leaseholders and people wishing to purchase flats.

On 29 April 2021, the government’s Fire Safety Bill became law. The passing of this bill means that building owners or managers of multi-occupied residential buildings must conduct a fire risk assessment for each building and take steps to reduce the risk of fire spreading. Southern Housing Group already has an up-to-date Fire Risk Assessment for each of our buildings. Read more...

As a responsible landlord, we have an ongoing programme in place to check our buildings and carry out any work required to ensure that our buildings comply with the government guidance. We are making applications to the Government’s Building Safety Fund for all eligible buildings. This fund is intended to cover the costs of works related to fixing defects in the external wall system.

We are doing all we can to protect leaseholders from picking up the costs of repair and remediation. We will exhaust every possible avenue available to us, including seeking to recover costs from the original developers.

We are calling on the government to do more to protect leaseholders from these costs. Although we welcome some of the government’s proposed measures, such as a new tax on developers and a cap on remediation costs for buildings under 18m at £50 per month, this does not go far enough to fund all of the remedial work that is required.

We will continue to keep you updated of any further developments of this issue. If you are in hardship, please speak to us. We want to support our residents and recognise that this is a stressful time for many. There may be options that we can discuss with you that can help.
