In July this year, we were delighted to announce that seven UK lenders [Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, Nationwide, NatWest, Santander and TSB] are covering the cost of making EWS-1 forms publicly available through the FIA’s Building Safety Information Portal [BSIP] at Building Safety Information Portal This offer was due to finish on 11th October.

Having observed significantly enhanced activity on the site over the last several months, we are pleased to announce a limited extension of the free assessor registrations and form submission period to 12th November.

This continuing collaboration between the lending industry, the FIA and UK Finance means that everyone including homeowners, prospective buyers, valuers and lenders can easily access a building's EWS1 form through a central portal.
