Leaseholder Deed of Certificate

The Building Safety Act 2022 states that certain non-cladding remediation costs for historical building works will have a maximum amount rechargeable by the Landlord to qualifying leaseholders.

A qualifying leaseholder will be:

  • a residential leaseholder in a building that has multiple residential homes in it, and the building is at least 11 metres high or has at least 5 storeys
  • the height of a building is to be measured from the ground level to the finished surface of the floor of the top storey of the building

Any top storey which is a roof-top machinery or garden area should be ignored. Likewise, any basement or storey below ground level can also be disregarded. However, any mezzanine floors might be considered a storey. For full details, please refer to section 117 and section 118 of the Act.

We are sending out notices to leaseholders who we think may qualify. This does not necessarily mean your building or lease is applicable, but we have a legal duty to ask, and you have a legal responsibility to reply. All leaseholder(s) names must be listed on the certificate but only one signature is required. We only require one certificate per property. We will not accept e-signatures.

There are no known defects with our buildings, but we must take this precautionary measure in case any future issues arise.

If you have lost your Leaseholder Deed of Certificate that we sent you, you can download one yourself from the government website.
