  • Comment on: Major blaze at housing block in south-west London

    J Bere's comment 10 September, 2019 11:28 am

    I believe that the poor quality of fire protection is a general problem in new build properties. Lenders ultimately carry the risk and it would seem to be in their interests to ensure that purchasers of any property obtain an independent fire survey from a reputable specialist surveyor. These people do exist, eg Arnold Tarling. The cost of the survey could be deducted from the purchase cost, and if a survey reveals serious problems, the vendor ought to be made to pay (by legislation) the cost of the survey whether or not the purchase proceeds. This would protect lenders and the public.

  • Comment on: Amin Taha wins appeal against Clerkenwell Close demolition order

    I understand that a Councillor Martin Kluke led the call for demolition of Amin's much-praised building? If so, is this the same person who on LinkedIn is an architectural technologist at AHMM, and who says in his profile he is spending quite a lot of his spare time as a councillor? If so, this seems weird to me and somewhat disturbing.
