Fake EWS1 Fire risk survey forms - being discussed on LBC


Recommended Posts

This was reported a while ago

https://www.thefpa.co.uk/news/scammers-hijacking-ews1-process-via-fake-forms

and is now being discussed on LBC.

Essentially either fake surveyors or unqualified surveyors (fire safety) signing off the EWS1 forms and then pocketing huge fees.

There also seems to be a mix of motives here. Many scammers just want the surveyor fee and do a runner having duped a somewhat arms length management company at the expense of leaseholders. I assume in those cases they just issue a fake pass in the hope it will take time to realise.

However, one caller on the subject also reported an actual surveyor deliberately failing a building and then recommending remedial work to be done by his son's firm.
