Desk top review FRA


Recommended Posts

What’s peoples opinion on a desk top review within the compliance date period for an FRA? Some works have been carried out and the client has provided photos of the FANs being updated and other minor remedial works. 
They have requested a desktop review and to update the FRA with the new information. 
However, RIBA recently announced that desk top reviews should be banned. They cited that “desktop reviews have been a significant contributing factor in regulatory failure”. 
Thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

A client can close an action with notes/photos on the live system for their property, but the original FRA by our consultants remains unchanged and isn't superseded until we have returned to site for a full review.
This is because often actions closed by clients have to be put back on because:
- The action has not been remedied correctly; or
- The action is still to be physically completed and the client has actually only obtained quotes for the work; or

- The action has been closed with no remedial work or mitigation at all as the client just wanted the action to go away without doing anything

.... and more
