Petition Action

Give leaseholders more legal protection and consumer rights

Petition Details

1. To amend Sections 88 & 89 of the Building Safety Bill so that leaseholders are not financially liable for building safety defects

2. To amend the limitation period for claims under S.1 Defective Premises Act 1972 to allow limitation to run 6 years from the date of discovery of the defects

Additional Information

Following Grenfell, the Government have set aside £1bn for historical cladding defects. This is nowhere near enough to fix all buildings requiring remediation.

Leaseholders have no legal protection against astronomical & life ruining costs incurred as a result of building safety failure. This is unacceptable.

It should not fall to leaseholders to remedy the failure of building safety regulations in buildings they did not build, did not sign off as safe when it was not & don’t even own.
