"Well done Richard. Goodness knows how you came across it.  The tension is tangible between the two young friends - or did they remain as friends?  Thanks for sharing and have sent you a DM."

"Really useful to have that letter for why an EWS1 isn’t needed. Might take a while to get but once we have one, other leaseholders in the block can probably use it!!"

"Seen that fire risk assessment, yes thanks. The message is clear but I understand no lenders will pay any attention to that"

"Yes. I imagine they were counting basement. Over 5 floors in a block of our type is not acceptable under some lenders’ policies"

George replied to George's discussion EWS1 Form (Cladding) Required?
"UPDATE: mortgage declined by lender because according to the inspector/valuer we have 7 floors (??) in Hatfield House which is apparently a fire risk because of the questionable post-Grenfell government regulations This will present difficulties in…"

"Thanks Lisa! I'd rather not share the lender in public for data/financial security but will message you privately.I've got a valuer booked to come visit next week (fundamentally they're the gatekeeper for requiring this EWS1…"

"Thanks, that's useful. GLE doesn't even have any cladding, let alone flammable cladding! It didn't even exist when the block was built...we just don't have an EWS1 form/survey to prove that"

"Good news - thanks for sharing. I'll have another look. I hope this means lenders will start relaxing their caution before December. As in, now!"

"Hi George - sounds difficult. We managed to remortgage with Santander 2 years ago no problem - maybe we got in before this form was required. Have the Estate Office managed to help? Or the City of London Housing team?  There's a Glera (the…"

Hello, as a leaseholder for almost 5 years on the estate (Hatfield House) I'm looking to remortgage to stay longer, however all of the lending banks are asking for an "EWS1 Form".The "EWS1 Form" has become a requirement for some blocks in the UK (but not for any on Golden Lane Estate) since the Grenfell Tower fire disaster. It checks that any cladding is safeGolden Lane Estate has no cladding with any of the flammable materials listed in the EWS1 survey, so the lending banks are being…See More
