Early last year, the government issued revised guidance on building safety standards for flats within apartment blocks. As a result, buildings of any height are now potentially in scope for requiring the EWS1 (external wall system) form devised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Meaning these surveys are becoming more popular by the day.
If you’re thinking about selling, remortgaging or staircasing your home, you need to be aware of government advice and changes to lenders’ approaches.
EWS1 certification requires a new assessment of the building by a qualified, independent professional to establish if the external wall system meets the new fire risk standards, or whether remedial work is needed.
Without this new EWS1 form, many lenders will not offer a mortgage or remortgage on a property.
