We are advising tenants that as far we know, we have no RAAC (Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) in our properties.  However, as a responsible landlord we prioritise the health and safety of our tenants and we will be undertaking an independent review of the structural integrity of homes built between 1950 and 1990.

If our structural survey experts identify homes that might potentially be at risk and need further more intrusive property surveys then we will notify tenants affected directly.

The dramatic closure of more than 100 schools in England has thrust RAAC to the top of the political agenda both north and south of the border.

RAAC is different from normal dense concrete as it is lightweight “bubbly” in appearance and relatively weak.  RAAC was introduced and widely used in the UK from the 1950s to the mid-1980s,  generally for wall panels or roof planks.

The issues surrounding risks of corrosion and failure of RAAC have been known for decades and good maintenance was the key to ensuring it did not crumble.

Should you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us on 01224 202900 or email [email protected]
