Quiz - how well do you understand your lease?
Understand the key things you should know about your lease. If you are a purchaser, this can help make sure your solicitor has covered all of these points and explained them clearly to you.
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has published the full fund Application Guidance for the Waking Watch Relief Fund.
The criteria for the fund has been published, setting out which buildings are eligible for funding, the evidence needed to apply and how applications will be assessed, as well as the way the funding is provided.
The fund will be distributed through councils, regional authorities, and directly through the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government, depending on the location of the building. The funding is available for buildings across England, with £22 million targeted to the cities with most high-rise buildings with unsafe cladding, including Manchester, Birmingham, and Leeds.
The remaining £8 million of the fund will be centrally administered and is available to buildings across all other areas of England.
The fund is now open for private sector buildings in all areas, except for those in Greater London. The fund is also open for social sector buildings in all areas. The application deadline for private sector buildings (except those in Greater London) and social sector buildings in all areas is 14th March 2021. Applications received after 14 March 2021 for this group of buildings will not be considered for funding.
If your building is a private sector building and is located in one of the following areas – Sheffield, Greater Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol, and Newcastle – the fund will be delivered by the relevant Local Authority or by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) in respect of Greater Manchester.
If your building is a private sector building and is located in Greater London the fund is not yet open for applications. The government is working to ensure that the fund is available to private sector buildings in Greater London as quickly as possible. The government will publish the application details and relevant application window for Greater London in due course. The funding allocation for Greater London will not be affected by these arrangements.
