The Government is aware that concerns about cladding have caused insurance premiums to rise for some tall buildings – and that this is causing significant difficulties for affected leaseholders. It is imperative that building owners and managing agents engage with brokers early and are as upfront as possible to ensure they can get the coverage they need. Government is continuing to engage with the insurance industry to find solutions to this issue.
