Building Safety Fund

The Department has been working at pace and with building owners to process the registrations to the Building Safety Fund and to ensure that as many buildings as possible can make use of the fund – a task that has been made challenging by the failure of many buildings to provide basic eligibility information. It became clear that many building owners would be unable to complete applications by our intended deadline of 31 December 2020, adding to the concerns of many leaseholders. To address this we announced on 17 December 2020 that building owners will now have until 30 June 2021 to complete their applications.
