  • Renters and homeowners will be able to move
  • Removal firms and estate agents can operate
  • Construction sites can and should continue
  • Tradespeople will be able to enter homes
  • But all must follow the Covid safety guidance

Presumably valuers and surveyors will be allowed access to properties.

Any news on EWS1 Mr Jenrick? The market is stalled as lenders won`t lend until they see one for properties that don`t even need one. Nuts.

We have not one single sq inch of the alluminium or other flammablec ladding, what we DO have is a combination of thermal insulation installed under Regulation O that WAS compliant when installed in 2000-04 but is now not, firebreaks and fire stopping is also deemed substandard, all hidden, but bizarrely a small amount of decorative wood panelling which we are told was never compliant; now excuse n=me, do not building go through planning, building control, and do not Councils issue Building Complican Completion Cetificates, for what exactly DO Councils charge if not to do their job?
