THE HARLOW Conservatives have further questions for Harlow Council over safety certificates.
A spokesperson said: “We are concerned by the lack of clarity in Harlow Council’s response given the extreme worry and distress the letter has caused so many residents. It is also extremely concerning that it appears the Council’s decision is relying on future legislation that has not been enacted or even introduced to Parliament yet.
“We ask them to answer two simple questions for Harlow residents:
1) Yes or no, is it a legal requirement for council leaseholders to produce gas and electrical testing certificates?
If yes, which current legislation requires this?
If no, what authority do Harlow Council have to demand it?
“The Council need to provide these answers immediately because so many residents are facing these huge charges.”
