Building Safety Act 2022
UK Government Guidance for Leaseholders,
Knightsbridge Court is defined as a "Relevant Building" under the Act and therefore if you are proposing to sell your Apartment you will need to produce a Landlord's Certificate from our Freeholder, and you should do this at the earliest possible opportunity.
The following details are an extract from the Government Webpage
1. To demonstrate whether you are a qualifying leaseholder for the purpose of the protections, and to enable your building owner to calculate your maximum cap for historical non-cladding safety remediation, you must complete the leaseholder deed of certificate (MS Word Document, 61.2 KB). (The definition of ‘building owner’ can be found in What are my building owner’s legal obligations?).
2. To pass on any historical safety remediation costs to you, as a leaseholder, your building owner must complete the landlord's certificate (MS Word Document, 57.9 KB).
