The article outlines the key takeaways from the first Building Safety Act (BSA) remediation order in the case of Leigham Court Road, highlighting the tribunal's flexibility with regard to interpreting the BSA's provisions.
Section 123 of the act provides interested persons such as leaseholders with a right to apply for a remediation order requiring a landlord to remedy defects in a building by a specified time. The case marked the first time a court had granted such an order."
