What can leaseholders and residents do if their responsible entity is not taking action to rectify historical building safety defects?

The Building Safety Act 2022 created legal protections for leaseholders from historical building safety costs. The Act protects qualifying leaseholders from all costs relating to the remediation of unsafe cladding systems and contains robust protections from non-cladding remediation costs.

To ensure that those who are liable to pay under leaseholder protections actually do so, the Act includes what are called anti-avoidance and enforcement provisions. These include Remediation Orders and Remediation Contribution Orders. You can find out more in the guide Making sure remediation work is done.
