Good News for there is now an additional 3.5 billion funding for non ACM cladding remediation works for buildings over 18m

Isn't this good news!

In fact isn't it excellent news!

On 10th February 2021 the Housing Secretary annouced that the government will pay for the removal of unsafe cladding for all leaseholders in high rise buildings, providing reassurance and protecting them from costs.

The Housing secretary unveiled a five-point plan which will provide reassurance to homeowners and bring confidence to the housing market.

All buildings 18 metres and over will be covered by the fund subject to eligibility.

 Building Eligibility

For buildings between 11 metres and 18 metres (4 to 6 storeys) leaseholders will have the ability to access loans at generous payment terms, with an assurance that a leaseholder will never pay more than £50.00 a month for cladding removal.

In conjunction with  Diamond and Co we continue  to carry out external wall fire reviews.
