To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what proportion of registrations for the Building Safety Fund have stated that they are a (a) local authority and (b) housing association.
1 September 2020
Registration to the Building Safety Fund closed on 31 July and we are currently reviewing and verifying the registration data. We will publish registration statistics next month. Based on our analysis to date, the proportion of local authority and housing association applicants to the Building Safety Fund has been low. MHCLG only sought registrations from Registered Providers with financial viability issues. For Registered Providers who do not have financial viability concerns, the claim process to allow them to claim costs which would otherwise be passed to leaseholders opened on 1 August.
