Answering your questions around EWS1 forms

Since the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in 2017, all blocks of flats built in a similar way are being inspected to identify any safety concerns and to outline any remedial work that needs to happen. 

You may have heard the term External Wall System form (EWS1) in the media recently, this is an independent report introduced by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) that confirms whether a block of flats meet government requirements around the safety of the external walls. This can apply to buildings over 18m and those under 18m high that have significant external cladding.

We’re committed to the safety of our customers and are pleased that very few of our buildings are affected by this issue.  

To answer any questions you might have, we’ve set up a dedicated page about EWS1 forms here.
