There are meetings scheduled that these kind of questions can be asked at. The fire at Grenfell has slowed process but I don't anticipate by that much. Better safe than sorry by rushing into the project.

Do remember the materials they are planning to use in Wellington close are far more superior to those used in Grenfell. The insulation/cladding for Wellington close under extreme heat would only melt if a fire was to break out. They are the highest rated safety parts you can get for cladding.

The alluminium cladding would need heats of 660 degrees before it started to melt. It would not burn as there is no polyethylene core to this cladding like there was at Grenfell. This is one of the reasons why there will be little delay here. Also the design of the cladding and existing building at Wellington close is much different to Grenfell. Especially height wise and the layout of the windows.

Grenfell cladding pretty much led to a wall of fire around the block. Wellington close is only 8-9 storey high. With this high quality cladding and fire breaks it should stop any fire spreading on the outside. Grenfell was in trouble early on as the fire crews could not reach the higher floors. So in this instance the fire crews would hopefully have ample time to put out any fire god forbid one should ever happen.

'n fire tests on aluminium materials, when the
temperature exceeds the melting point, in the
range 600-660°C, the aluminium surface exposed
to the fire can be seen to melt, but it does not burn.
At the end of the fire test, the metal remains as a
resolidified pool.'

Final thought.

You only have until August 11 to pay for the recladding. After that it goes straight to a debt collection agency. A friend of mine owed £5k last November to a lawyer and didn't pay. Debt collector called - 9 months on and she is going to court this month to stop them declaring her bankrupt, which would mean she would lose ownership of the home she's already paid 75% of the mortgage of. It's either that or pay the debt - which has now gone up to £9k. And worst of all she's had a CCJ issued against her - she was in the process of buying a property and the CCJ meant the mortgage company pulled the offer and no other lender is now prepared to lend, and the purchase has fallen through. Don't be like her!

On the topic of the funds, did you sue your solicitor for not telling you about the bills as advised?

There is a recladding meeting on Monday 7th August at the riverside barn at 7;30pm.
You are not a native English person , so you should employ an interpreter and attend this meeting to learn what you must do to preserve your investment.
