Following updated government guidance on building safety we have a building safety programme in place which is systematically checking all the buildings we own to ensure that they comply with the updated safety advice. More information is available here.
Ada Lewis House is below 18m in height, and when the property was built, it met all building and fire safety regulations at the time.
It is part of the second phase of our building safety programme which is underway now. You can find out more about how our building safety programme works, general guidance for leaseholders who are looking to sell or remortgage and what to expect here.
