Residents are being forced to leave their city centre apartments- because the building violates fire safety rules.
Many homeowners in Islington Wharf Mews purchased their properties only last year, but it was soon revealed that the apartments had building fireproofing defects. They will have to live elsewhere for up to 10 months while the issue is corrected.
ISIS Waterside, which developed the property, is also in a serious row with residents in the first phase of the adjacent development.
Islington Wharf residents state that they are contemplating legal action because temperatures in their flats reach over 35C every summer. The developer has provided temporary air conditioning units and intends to replace the windows.
At Islington Wharf Mews, a collection of almost 50 upscale flats, residents had bought and moved into them months before learning about the fireproofing issue. It has been stated that a private firm had approved the fireproofing.
