Our Campaign

Up to 3 million people face waiting as long as a decade to sell almost any modern flat because they cannot prove their walls are safe. The £1bn Building Safety Fund announced by the Government in May 2020 will cover fewer than 600 of the 2,957 developments that have registered, leaving 2,357 with no recourse to remediation. In the absence of funding, costs for remediation will fall on leaseholders – with sums reaching above £100,000 per flat in the worst cases. Leaseholders are already paying for interim safety measures such as waking watches (24-hour fire patrols) at costs of up to £800 per month each, until their blocks are made safe. Our campaign provides a 10-step plan to first make homes safe, then hold those responsible for these failings to account and protect innocent leaseholders from paying for the failures of others.
