Prohibition on passing remediation costs onto leaseholders and tenants

Part of Fire Safety Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 3:15 pm on 25 June 2020.

Alert me about debates like this

“The owner of a building must not pass the costs of making any remedial work attributable to the provisions of this Act on to any leaseholders or tenants of that building.”—

The purpose of this new clause is to stop freeholders passing on remediation costs to leaseholders and tenants, such as through demands for one-off payments or increases in service or other charges.
