New electrical checks and safety standards for Landlords8:59 AM, 15th January 2020

I am a private Landlord with a modest sized portfolio. I was able to have all my properties clad with external wall insulation with the help of Green Deal grants.
I kept a sample of the foam insulation used.
In view of the Grenfell Towers tragedy I decided to take a sample of the foam insulation and set fire to it and was horrified to find that if billowed black toxic smoke and dripped hot foam.
Can fellow Landlords please help. What is my position, and that of possibly many other Landlords, can the installer (a large national business) be required to replace the external wall insulation at their own expense, using ‘safe’ fire and smoke resistant foam insulation.
