Sorry for a double post. I am a leaseholder at Aylton Estate, Renforth street, SE16, and I have noticed that my block is among those set for refurbishment this year (this covers entire Southwark Council
, it seems they're set to refurbish a whole lot of blocks):
Irwell Estate near me has already been done - it had its okay'ish red brick exterior plastered and painted light grey (the standard of works seems to be appalling - uneven plastering, dents, chipping off paint, in places where there are wall gutters - they've just left them unplastered lol, etc). I am afraid my block will be done in the same way, and I fear hefty charges for the work that is totally unnecessary, and when done - defective.
Is there anyone here from that district? I haven't yet received a section 20 notice from the Council, but I'm looking for the comrades of fate in advance.
Did anyone have their block's exterior plastered and painted? How much have you been charged for this by Southwark? Looking at the finished Irwell estate, there is no windows or roofing involved (double glazing has been done long ago), they just did the walls. The block btw is low rise and does not have any lifts.
Let's team up!
