Leasehold fire safety
The focus on fire safety has increased drastically since the introduction of the Building Safety Act (BSA), as it includes new measures, some of which are hard to interpret and may require expert assistance.
Keeping up to date with fire safety
Following the tragic events of Grenfell Tower and the subsequent introduction of the Building Safety Act, a number of leasehold properties have been found to need substantial fire remediation works. Additionally, a significant amount of leasehold properties have needed to introduce new processes, some of which are extremely costly, such as a waking watch.
How can Brady Solicitors help?
All these new introductions have raised a number of questions which the experts at Brady Solicitors can assist you with, such as:
- Who is responsible for fire remediation works
- How are any required works funded
- How to communicate and arrange access with leaseholders
- What funding options are available
- How to deal with obstructive leaseholders
- How is cladding replacement arranged
- Are managing agents responsible for apartment entrance doors

They really ‘get’ the property management industry and what is required to support us in the variety of challenges we face.
I have found them to be highly professional in all our dealings, but most of all knowledgeable of the minutiae of service charges and block management.
We feel we have an expert partner on our side supporting our arrears collection. Using Bradys making our block management projects easier, educates our team and fundamentally makes our client relationships stronger.
We turned to Brady Solicitors when our existing legal team hit a brick wall. Bradys got to grips with the problem, recovered the arrears and – happily – have helped us to build better leaseholder relationships.
Since using Bradys for the last 18 months our service charge arrears situation has completely reversed. Not only have the collected arrears that have hung round for ages but they have reduced the overall debt considerably including on complex freehold estate rent charges.
We take great pride in the recognition we have received, which showcases our innovative approaches and capabilities within the industry.
