Ask your MP to protect leaseholders (flat owners) from the costs of fixing cladding and other historic fire safety defects
THE FIRE SAFETY BILLS RETURNS TO PARLIAMENT ON 20TH APRIL
The cladding and fire safety crisis is leaving thousands of leaseholders (flat owners) with massive bills and at risk of bankruptcy. We are calling on the government to deliver on its commitment that leaseholders pay nothing to fix unsafe buildings.
On the 10th February the government announced extra funding for fixing cladding. But this fails to address other fire safety defects and any funding to those in buildings under 18m. The measures announced will not solve the crisis and much more needs to be done.
The House of Lords proposed an amendment to the Fire Safety Bill to protect leaseholders from the costs of fixing unsafe buildings. This was voted down by the House of Commons, but the Lords have proposed a new amendment to protect leaseholders from the costs that will be voted on 20th April. If voted for, the Bill will then immediately again return to the House of Commons in April and be voted on by MPs.
