To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to his 21 November 2020 announcement entitled Government steps in to help homeowners caught up in EWS1 process, what estimate he has made of the number and proportion of leaseholders and homeowners who will continue to need an EWS1 certificate to sell their home.

The EWS1 process is not a Government form or regulatory requirement, and the Department does not hold data on its use. It was designed by industry to aid the valuations of buildings over 18 metres. Whether an EWS1 is needed is determined by lenders and the professionals valuing a building - not all lenders ask for an EWS1.
