Social landlords could recover cladding costs, say legal experts

In response to the Grenfell Tower fire social landlords have been inspecting the cladding on their tower blocks and a number have said the cladding does not match what they originally specified.

Several lawyers have told Inside Housing they have received a large number of enquiries from landlords about the legal routes they could take against contractors following a review of the cladding on their tower blocks.

In a comment piece Charles Beverton, senior associate at Winckworth Sherwood, said most construction contracts require the contractor to comply with all relevant legislation, including the building regulations.
