Cladding Remediation & Building Safety Act Support

Everyone should feel safe in their own homes – including those who live in buildings with unsafe cladding. 

Legislation states that, if a building is found to have unsafe cladding, the building’s owner is responsible for any remediation works rather than the leaseholders. However, this leaves a grey area where resident management (RMC) and right-to-manage (RTM) companies are concerned, as these companies are both building owners and residential leaseholders. 

The cladding remediation process is very complicated and RTMs and RMCs are not legal specialists – fortunately, we are.

Our team of commercial, construction and property litigation experts advise RMC and RTM companies at every phase of the cladding remediation journey. 

This includes advising on the terms of grant funding offers and agreements to pay for the remedial works, appointing consultants to implement the works, preparing necessary construction contracts, ensuring works access rights and recovering any appropriate costs after the works are complete.

Prime Property Management

We have been very impressed by the work Muckle has undertaken for us with regard to navigating the various legal complexities of the government-funded building safety remediation project. They have been proactive, prompt in their responses, and clear in their recommendations and advice. This is even more impressive given the fact that there is no precedence for this work. At all stages, we have felt reassured that they are providing guidance in the best interests of the RTM and our leaseholders. We have no hesitation in recommending their services to other RTMs and managing agents.
