To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what estimate his Department has made of the average per household costs born by leaseholders addressing fire safety in high-rise residential buildings with unsafe cladding that (a) qualify and (b) do not qualify for the Building Safety Fund.
10 November 2020
The purpose of the Building Safety Fund is to increase the pace of remediation of unsafe non-Aluminium Composite Material cladding in residential buildings 18 metres and above. Any costs for leaseholders will depend on the extent of other remediation work to be carried out which is beyond the scope of the Fund. For remediation costs in general, the draft Building Safety Bill includes an impact assessment which is available at www.gov.uk/government/publications/draft-building-safety-bill . Further analytical work will be undertaken to update the impact assessment, including the cost estimates for leaseholders, which will be published when the Bill is formally introduced to Parliament.
