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?
