Cladding Crisis in Scotland Online Seminar Event

On Thursday, 24th February from 6-8pm, Watermans will be hosting an Online Seminar about the Cladding Crisis in Scotland and we would like to invite you along.

The online event will take place virtually over YouTube, starting at 6pm and we will be joined by our panel of industry experts who will cover a wide range of topics associated with the Cladding Crisis in Scotland, such as:

Things we will be covering at this event:

  • What is “Cladding” and how do I know if the property I own is affected by cladding?
  • What is an EWS1 form and how do I get one?
  • Can I sell my property if the building has cladding? What do I need to do to sell?
  • I’m interested to buy a property in Scotland, but the Home Report Survey says that there’s cladding or recommends that an EWS1 form is required – is it okay or safe for me to buy a property with cladding?
  • I need to re-mortgage my property – either because my current mortgage is about to expire or because I want to release equity – what are my options if my building has cladding or needs an EWS1 Form?
  • What is the Scottish Government doing about the Cladding Crisis?
  • What is a Single Building Assessment Form?
