Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

I’ve received several additional service charge demands for a walking watch where there is, as yet, uncertainty as to the fire safety compliance of the blocks in which I have flats. These are already running into the hundreds of pounds per apartment.
I feel really frustrated about it as it appears the whole charges are passed on to the leaseholders and the landlords (like Charlton, Aviva and Adriatic) appear to be contributing nothing. Are others in the same boat with these types of charges?
I would have thought regarding safety, that the landlord needs to take their responsibilities seriously and step up to the plate with regards to costs. I let out the apartments I own and I wouldn’t expect my tenants to pay to replace faulty equipment, fire alarms etc, that would be down to me as their landlord.
As a leaseholder I would expect the same of my landlord when it comes to the fabric of the building wouldn’t you?
I’d be interested to know if you’ve anyone has any comments or advice.
