High Rise Properties Update

Published on 30/10/2018

Hacking and Paterson Management Services have been made aware of the recent guidance note issued by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government entitled ‘Advice for owners of buildings which are partially clad in Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding systems’, the content of which will be worrying for any homeowners affected by this issue.

The view of the Expert Advisory Panel at point 2 reads:

“The clearest way to ensure the safety of residents is to remove all ACM, including small or partial areas of ACM, and replace it with a safe material. This remains the most appropriate remediation solution.”

While this doesn’t affect Scotland now, we intend passing this guidance note to our homeowner customers affected by this issue and have written to Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and Scottish Fire and Rescue Services seeking their further advice.
