Report a dangerous structure
To report a dangerous structure, please call 020 7974 4444. If you are a Camden Council tenant or leaseholder, contact your housing officer.
Under section 78 “Dangerous building—emergency measures.” of the Building Act 1984
Local Authorities have a statutory duty to attend to dangerous structures that present a danger to the public.
In the event of a Dangerous Structure council officers will make all reasonable efforts to contact the owner of the property to request that they make the structure safe. If the officer is unable to make contact with the legal owner of the property they are authorised to take all reasonable actions to make safe the structure, and the authority will look to recover from the owner the expenses incurred.
Camden Building Control`s current charge to attend to a Dangerous Structure is £274 for calls during out of hours (5pm to 9am) and £156 for calls within working hours (9am to 5pm). There will be additional charges if the on-duty contractor is called out to remove the danger.
