The Grenfell fire has quite rightly forced all owners of high-rise blocks of flats to consider their safety, and in particular, analyse their cladding, if any.
I am the leaseholder of a flat in such a building.
It has been told it has the same cladding as Grenfell Tower, and must be removed and replaced, at a cost of over one million pounds. Each of the 90+ privately owned flats is about to be billed (over two years) for £13,500, plus a further £5000 for additional safety measures that have been recommended (fire-watch, etc.)
The insurance company have stated that as the building has not been damaged, they are not involved.
The Management company is convinced we should all have to pay – apart from their employer – the Freeholder.
It will ruin many leaseholders, including me.
Is the Freeholder liable – for allowing such a situation to take place about eight years ago, or inheriting such a situation (before they actually bought the Freehold!) We are putting our faith in our local M.P.
Anyone else having this same problem?
