I own a flat in London which I rent out – and recently received a Hazard Awareness Notice from the council relating to some fire safety issues. This came with a schedule of required works and a thinly veiled threat to upgrade the notice to an Improvement Notice if nothing is done.
Some of the proposed works seem reasonable – some less so – and I need to get back to the council with a ‘time frame’ for the works.
My question – Is there any room for negotiation on the schedule of works?
ie – can I go back to the council and say ‘ill do this and this, but not this’ – or will that open up the real risk of them upgrading the notice to IN?
One more wrinkle – I’m planning on selling the flat soon, so don’t want this hanging over the deal.
Many thanks for any input.
