Gove is pushing property firms to make buildings ‘safe’ prior to selling:
Many buildings are put at risk by cladding or facing legal action due to safety problems caused by cladding as observed by the Grenfell Tower incident. Gove has imposed a deadline for Easter to make sure this material is removed from all lowrise blocks otherwise these firms will be exposed and “pursued.”
This is due to the protest which is based upon the idea that those who have profited and continue to profit from the sale of these unsafe buildings must take responsibility. Loans for these buildings will be replaced by a limited grant scheme in order to support those who cannot re-mortgage their house to pay the new insurance required.
If you are a private firm, check your properties!
