To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they will take in situations where a building owner refuses to apply for government remediation for building safety issues for a qualifying high-rise building.
26 January 2022
The Government has been clear that leaseholders should not bear the costs for the remediation of unsafe cladding. We are aware of one unacceptable case where the building owner is refusing to accept government funding and reimburse their leaseholders. The Department is urgently working to resolve this to make sure that the building owner does right by their leaseholders and reimburses them.
Where a building owner does not wish to apply for government funding, they should fund remediation themselves or through warranty claims and litigation against those responsible for the installation of unsafe cladding.
