A survey has confirmed that Vista Tower cladding has no acm’s (Aluminium Composite Material) and therefore not combustible in its nature. However, further remediation work required for the glazing blanking panels to be complaint to the Advice Note 14 and 15. In July 2020, UK Government has committed £1 Billion to support the remediation of non-Aluminium Composite Material (acm) cladding systems on residential buildings 18 metres and over in height. Vista Tower has since registered for the Government fund via the Property Management Company. Further fire safety survey will be required to provide a schedule of works in order that the necessary project may be competitively tendered. Since the new guidance, all buildings that is above 18 metres in height have had challenges with mortgage valuation. The External Fire Review form (EWS1) has been developed by Royal Institution of Charted Surveyors (RICS) together with UK finance and the Building Societies Association (bsa) to give comfort to lenders. However, a majority of Professional Indemnity Insurance insurers are not prepared to offer surveyor’s cover to undertake EW1S work, if available it is prohibitively expensive. Therefore, the mortgage challenge is yet to be resolved across the country since 2018. As such, the property will be marketed for cash buyers or cash investors only.
