Environmental Repair Notice Received – Good Lawyer Required

I have been issued with an Environmental Repair Notice on a block of flats we own the freehold of, in addition to 4 units in the 9 unit block. Don Holmes

The council officer is clearly on a ‘witch hunt’. We have been making progress on the repairs highlighted although outside the stated time scales, caused mainly by funding, but progress nonetheless. Further to this he keeps moving the goal posts and has now insisted on us extending the communal fire alarm system into leaseholders flats and is holding us, the freeholder, responsible although has not stated so in writing. I think that is just part of his intimidating tactic.

Long story but culminating in him now issuing a letter under the Police and Criminal Justice Act, stating we must now attend a meeting under caution! The witch hunt goes on.

Do we have a specialist solicitor dealing in this sort of issue in the network or can anyone recommend such a lawyer?

Thanks

Don Holmes

I've not had the pleasure of meeting Margaret yet but from all accounts she is an incredibly experienced lawyer.
