Nigel Glen of the Association of Residential Managing Agents says consequences of Advice Note 14 are 'enormous'.

"One member alone has 500 stalled sales with more coming in every day. It could cause the complete stalling of flat selling in England."
The problem - IMHO - route from a government approach which hands over responsibility rather than proactively taking the lead, auditing risk and prioritising work.

The result is people living in homes being unable to sell. This is a big problem which is largely below the surface
Oh and also 30 years of deregulation which has left our homes covered in flammable plastic. But at this stage that basically goes without saying.
