Enforcement & Improvement Notices

Expert Advice on Responding to Notices

With a strong track record in fire and building safety matters, we are well versed in providing support and advice to landlords and management companies in responding to Enforcement, Prohibition or Improvement Notices from Fire or Local Authorities.

Under the new building safety regime, failure to comply with a notice served by the fire and rescue authority may lead to prosecution. The responsible person may also be prosecuted if they fail to comply with their duties under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO)  as amended by the Fire Safety Act 2021 - so advice should be sought if there is any doubt as to the role of the responsible person and requirements to comply with the FSO and the FSA.

We can provide advice on validity of notices, appeals of such notices to the First-tier Tribunal (FTT) and negotiation strategies with local authorities where appropriate, to successfully receiving withdrawal of notices by local authorities, ensuring mediation success in agreeing works and within realistic timescales.
