Protect leaseholders from paying for cladding remedial works

Petition Details

The Draft Building Safety Bill currently proposes a Building Safety Charge payable by leaseholders for cladding remedial works. This should be removed and public funds made available to protect citizens through appropriate safety standards, and Freeholders should also be made to contribute.

Additional Information

Currently leaseholders are living in homes/flats which are unsafe, unsellable, and face paying for something which was not their fault. The government should take responsibility for failing to create and uphold appropriate fire safety standards and provide funds to make buildings safe and kick-start the construction industry. Freeholders should also ultimately be responsible for removing this unsafe cladding.
