CLIFFORDS INN - THE BUILDING
Cliffords Inn is divided into two parts. One part is residential and contains around 100 flats (the Residential Part). The other part is dedicated principally to commercial use. The residential part was modernised in the 1970s and a facade designed by the architect Boyd Auger was erected on the front of the building (the original drawings for this facade can still be found in the Victoria and Albert museum). In 2014 a new facade replaced the 1970s facade and the offices on the first two floors were extended and an additional eight flats were built. The new flats are not part of Cliffords Inn residential. They are known as the Fetter Lane Apartments and they have their own entrance and a separate postal address.
The freeholder is lngrove Ltd, c/o CLSH Management Ltd, 86 Bondway, London, SW9 1SF.
Clifford's Inn Management Company Ltd (CIMC) is the company formed to manage the residential part of the block on behalf of the lessees. Its registered address is 28-44 Alma St, Luton, LU1 2PL. All lessees own a share in the company. CIMC is solely concerned with the residential part of the building; it has no responsibility for the commercial part or those flats known as the Fetter Lane Apartments.
REFUSE, RECYCLING AND UNWANTED ITEMS
All residents are responsible for bagging their refuse and placing the bags in one of the service rooms located on each corridor. CIMC's staff collect the bags daily and carry them to the outside of the building for collection by the Corporation of London. Please ensure that kitchen rubbish is in secure and well-sealed plastic bags tightly tied so that no smell or liquids escape. Try to avoid discarding any liquids as these can seep from plastic bags and stain the carpets in the common parts on being moved out of the building.
All rubbish MUST be placed in one or other of the two types of bag provided by the Corporation of London.
Recycling is everyone's responsibility. See through bags are provided for mixed recycling. These are available in every service room for residents or can be requested from the porters. Articles do not need to be separated and the following can all be placed in the same see-through bag:
plastic (but no black bags)
clean aluminium foil and food containers
There are clear instructions on the bags and also
displayed on the walls of the refuse rooms on how and what to recycle.
Recycling bags must not be used for any other purpose than recycling.
All other rubbish must be placed in the white plastic Corporation of London bags which can be obtained from the porters. Small household bags can be placed in the dustbins provided but they must be sealed and they must not overflow the top of the bin. Loose refuse must not be placed in these bins.
NB The Corporation of London will not remove rubbish unless it is in one of these two types of bag so larger items must be cut up to fit the bags.
ALL BAGS MUST BE SEALED BEFORE PLACING IN THE SERVICE ROOM
Please Note: The service rooms are for domestic refuse only. Contractors must remove all packaging, debris and redundant fittings and take them away for disposal.
Wherever possible, ask delivery companies to take away packaging from appliances and large items. Many delivery companies will do this on request.
If any unwanted items could be used by someone else rather than being discarded, residents are urged to consider donating these to charity. The nearest charity shop is located in Leather Lane which is less than ten minutes' walk from Cliffords Inn. This charity shop is very happy to receive donations and will also accept electrical items providing they are working.
For larger items many charities provide a pick up service which is free of charge as opposed to the Corporation of London which levies a charge to dispose of items.
Where items are not in a suitable state for donation residents should telephone the Corporation of London collection service and make arrangements for collection. A list of relevant telephone numbers is available from the porters at the front desk/below.
The roof is NOT included in the common parts. Certain areas of the roof are leased as private terraces and the lessees of the relevant flats, their tenants, guests and contractors are entitled to use the areas leased to them. The remainder of the roof is strictly out of bounds to anyone except to the freeholder and CIMC's authorised contractors and the access doors to the roof are kept locked.
CIMC has appointed Aston Rose to act as its professional managing agent and to carry out the management of the residential part of the building on its behalf. They have appointed Jonathan Thorpe to manage Cliffords Inn. Please contact him if you have any problems. His details are, telephone: 0207 6291533 and email: JonathanThorp@astonrose.co.uk.
CIMC has established a website at www.cliffordsinn.info. This website gives a lot of historical information about Cliffords Inn, the oldest and longest-lasting of the Inns of Chancery which existed on this site from 1304 to 1900. The website is slowly being expanded as more information becomes available.
SAFETY BE CAREFUL!
(1) FIRE AND OTHER EMERGENCY EVENTS
Cliffords Inn complies with current fire regulations and currently enjoys a low fire hazard rating. The fire alarm is tested every week at 11 am on Thursdays.
There are only two exit routes from the building in the event of an emergency evacuation. These are the front door, via the passages, the front stairs and the front lobby and the back door via the passages, the back stairs and the back lobby. It is essential that these areas are kept clear of anything which could block or trip people trying to escape in an emergency. The porters have strict instructions to remove any personal property found in the corridors and other public areas, such as shoes, door mats, bicycles, children's toys, prams and buggies, without exception
In the event of an emergency evacuation, the lifts must NOT be used. There is NO emergency exit or escape route via the roof.
Smoking is prohibited in the public parts of the building by law, and this prohibition is strictly enforced by CIMC and Aston Rose.
The residential part of the building is served by internal and external CCTV surveillance backed up by a recording system. The porters are required to be vigilant to prevent unauthorised access to the building and the individual flats.
The security systems put in place by CIMC and Aston Rose, will, however, only work with the full and active co-operation of all the lessees and residents.
Lessees and residents also have a responsibility for ensuring the safety of everyone else who uses the building. Never allow anyone into the building whose identity is unknown. If someone asks to be let in, refer them to the porter on duty. If any person is seen acting suspiciously or an unauthorised entry appears to have taken place, report it immediately to the porter on duty and if appropriate dial 999.
Please note that no one is permitted to enter the building wearing a full face helmet.
Please help with the security of the building by taking the following precautions:-
