Do leaseholders have to pay for Health and Safety inspections for communal parts?

Updated: May 15

Asbestos and fire risk assessments of the communal parts of a leasehold block are required by Health and Safety at Work Regulations because common parts of buildings are regarded as workplaces in these Regulations. The landlord or managers can only recover costs relating to this from service charges if the terms of the lease allow it. Most leases include terms that allow the landlord or managers to arrange the necessary works and recover the costs as part of the service charge if these works are required under a statutory duty.
