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.
What steps have we taken at Ada Lewis House?
1. Completed investigations
Our experts have completed investigations into the building materials used at Ada Lewis House. Both blocks have been awarded a B1 rated EWS1 form, which states that no further remedial work is required. A B1 rating is usually of the standard at which lenders are willing to lend against a property, and should be sufficient with the majority of lenders to proceed with a mortgage application or for shared owners to staircase.
