Building (Scotland) Act 2003

Section 44: Expenses

118.This section deals with the liability of persons from whom a local authority has demanded payment of expenses in relation to work carried out by that local authority to secure compliance with notices under Parts 3 and 4. For example, where a dangerous building notice requires that a building be demolished and an owner has failed to carry out the demolition, the local authority may have to carry out the demolition itself and therefore claim the expenses it has incurred from the owner. Subsections (2) to (5) make provision for liability for expenses to be restricted or transferred.
