Hazard Awareness Notice - how to respond?

Reply to the comment left by "Luke P" at "17/08/2015 - 13:58":

Thanks for the advice.
I have contemplated getting the fire authority in, but now Im paranoid that they might find something even worse and the whole thing escalates even further. We are now looking at putting in an escape panel onto the landing. Its only money after all.

thanks for all the help... Read More

Hazard Awareness Notice - how to respond?

Luke P - you were not wrong.
The council are not giving an inch.
The building management are not happy about the prospect of having sprinklers in a first floor flat. We've had three fire protection companies say they wouldnt recommend sprinklers - and next month the whole building is having an upgrade to a grade A alarm system. Still nothing.
Also - its my understanding that with a Hazard Awareness Notice - there isnt even an appeal procedure.

Its all gone a bit Kafka.

Thanks for all your advice though... Read More

Hazard Awareness Notice - how to respond?

Many thanks for these responses. The building management company have shown the schedule to their regular surveyor and he has said that one request in particular (installing a sprinkler system) is highly unusual in these situations.
Im rather hoping to avoid any escalation to tribunals or wrangling over legislation. I think Ill give them a call and hope for a reasonable response.

thanks again
