Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN 142992, tabled on 25 January 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 11 January 2021 to Question 910674 on Buildings: Insulation, when his Department plans to respond to the proposal by the all-party parliamentary group on Leasehold Reform for a bond scheme to pay for remedial works.

It is unacceptable for leaseholders to have to worry about the cost of fixing historic safety defects in their buildings that they did not cause.   The Government is determined to remove barriers to fixing historic defects and identify financing solutions that help to protect leaseholders, whilst also helping to protect the taxpayer.

The Government is accelerating this work and is continuing to engage with stakeholders including the all-party parliamentary group on Leasehold Reform. We will provide an update as soon as we are in a position to do so.
