Recovery of the cost of essential safety measures and s 251 of the Building Act part II

  • Author : Samuel Hopper - 12-07-2012

I recently wrote a short note, available here, in relation to an issue that has emerged about the operation of s 251 of the Building Act on the landlord's ability to recover certain outgoings.

Robert Hay has added another post to his blog on this topic that further advances the debate.

Unfortunately, I am still not in a position to comment publicly on this issue.
