Re: fire west london

Very sad reading, it should all come down on their heads. I would like to ask what has the government done for all those people in the UK who are living in high-rise apartments with similar cladding 3 years later? What have they done to change things?

Re: fire west london

This is an absolute scandal. Our son tried to sell his apartment in an apartment block in November last year. He had settled on an offer only to find out that the block didn't have an EWS certificate. The buyer's mortgage company wouldn't come out to value the property without this certificate. When he contacted the building's management company about this they said that they were confident the building was OK and that some sales in the building had actually gone through (cash buyers obviously).

To allay our fears we asked the company what the cladding on the building was made of, they couldn't tell us. To cut a long story short, we ended up having to go to our MP and she had to force the management company to get the appropriate fire safety check. Guess what? Though the building was mostly OK, there was a percentage of the outlawed ACM (same as Grenfell) on one side of the structure. Now, six months later, they still haven't remediated the cladding and he still can't sell his apartment because the mortgage companies won't lend. To add insult to injury, the insurance has rocketed because of the unsafe cladding. I guess he's lucky that he doesn't have to pay for a waking watch like some apartment blocks.

The freeholder is some anonymous company forever changing its name and hiding their money offshore. Will the Government chase these charlatans for the money? Not on your life.

You surely are not insinuating a cover up again are you?

Re: fire west london

The problems selling flats are a national scandal. There aren't enough qualified surveyors to cover the country. So sorry for your son, it's frustrating beyond. It's the same problem with some prestigious blocks on the Bay in Cardiff too.

Who do you reckon developed these flats, probably on a grouse shoot recently and haven't had the time or inclination to try and sort it out.
My guess the original developers will go into administration to avoid their responsibility.

Re: fire west london

Leasehold properties are a license to print money for the freeholder. We learned recently that the freeholder gets a 25% bonus from the insurer for taking out their product. Where is the incentive to shop around and get best value? They charge you for anything they can. To have a pet it costs the leaseholder 75, to sublet your apartment 175 and to sell you have to pay over 300 for a sellers pack (otherwise they won't give your solicitor the relevant information). However, when it comes to them coughing up for these serious defects concerning safety they are not to be seen.

What i don't understand is why we have redress for defective cars, washers etc but no comeback for defective houses

Re: fire west london

The failure to replace dangerous Grenfell-style cladding three years after the tragedy is "disgraceful", Boris Johnson has admitted.

The prime minister was asked during prime minister's questions on Wednesday what steps the government was taking to replace unsafe cladding on high-rise buildings, following as series of delays and criticism by watchdogs.

OK Boris, now let's see some real action. We have had enough hot air
