£4.5bn BUILDING SAFETY FUND RE-OPENS FOR NEW APPLICATIONS

27 July 2022

New Fund Application Guidance & Leaseholder Protections Checker Published

As promised by Government, we have received confirmation that the Building Safety Fund has today re-opened for new applications for remediation projects, with the added ability for leaseholders to check and prove if they qualify for the recently published legal leaseholder protections against unfair costs, under the Building Safety Act.

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities (DLUHC) has adapted the Building Safety Fund to ensure high-rise buildings continue to be made safe while focussing relentlessly on making sure the approach is risk-driven, proportionate, and delivered more quickly. People’s safety will remain paramount.

The following supporting information for the Building Safety Fund has been published on GOV.UK:

The new online Leaseholder Protections Checker will help leaseholders understand if they qualify for financial protections against historical building safety costs, under the Building Safety Act. Those that the protections apply to will need to complete and submit a leaseholder Deed of Certificate to their building owner to confirm if they have to pay anything or not.
