Yet another new Housing Minister - 'Big Beast' Michael Gove

There are some in government who accept that they are responsible.

Interestingly, leaked documents now expose that, years before the Grenfell tragedy, ACM cladding was failing all fire tests but the government ignored this and pronounced them safe for use.

#EndOurCladdingScandal

I am of the opinion that the polluter should always pay. Surely a more equitable solution to this heinous situation would have seen the government offering low interest" loans" to obscenely wealthy stock exchange listed development companies to remedy this scandal instead of passing the responsibility to the leaseholders who are victims of a system not of their making.
Why would you want to make homeowners bear the double cost of debt in home ownership that would take double their lifetimes to service?
I usually enjoy your comments Neil. They are cogent, erudite and very supportive of property owners.
In this instance however you are failing them.... Read More

#EndOurCladdingScandal

I quote from your comment above "The Government will be ripped off by contractors and end up paying two or three times what it ought to."
This is exactly what is expected from innocent leaseholders who did not build, inspect, pass or legislate the rules governing building standards in the UK. All they did was buy into the dream of owning their own home. That dream has become a nightmare legislated with extreme haste by the government into an outright condemnation of the innocent into spiraling costs to protect the corrupt. No other country with cladding installations has acted in this appalling manner. Every effort should be made to expose this scandal including supporting the above plea. The UK government ignores the severity of the situation because attitudes like yours exist.
People who bought homes with fire safety issues would get better after sales service from the company that sold them a faulty iron.
How do you justify your stance when leaseholders are receiving bills amounting to the value of their initial purchase to make right the egregious building standards of their homes.
THEIR HOMES.
Which are now fire hazards valued at nil.... Read More

Government agree with lenders to end EWS1 form requirement for below 18 metres

Another useless piece of legislation to make it look as though the Tories are doing something constructive about the cladding scandal. And this was done just hours before the Fire Safety Bill was voted on in parliament yesterday which most certainly does NOT protect leaseholders from the responsibility of financially paying for all historic fire defects. Fire defects that are a direct result of tardy regulation and a corrupt relationship between developers and government/councils.
Unless RICS or the lending institutions, as a collective, agree with government the status quo remains as is.
Our buildings continue to be worth nil value ; unsaleable, unmortgageable and unrentable.... Read More
