Fire Safety: Who Pays?

Fire Safety: Who Pays?

While landlords have navigated their way through building and fire safety issues over the last few years, the issue of who ultimately pays remains complex. In this webinar, Lee Russell, Alice Overton, and Kathryn Kligerman will take you through the practical issues affecting landlords and the options that might be available.

Topics Covered:

  • Claims against third parties, including contractors and/or developers
  • Ability to recover costs through service charges
  • Government Funding Schemes
  • Consumer Credit considerations and how to avoid a statutory breach
