Response to RICS consultation about guidance relating to the EWS1 process

BSA and UK Finance joint response

BSA and UK Finance joint response to the RICS consultation:

"Homeowners in flats and apartments should be able to have confidence that their property is safe to live in, and buyers should expect no less. Today's launch of the RICS consultation about valuer guidance relating to the EWS1 process is a welcome step forward in supporting a safe and smoothly functioning housing market. While it's too early in this process to pre-judge the outcome of the consultation given the multiple stakeholders involved, lenders will be actively involved, positively contributing to the development of solutions for those affected."
