Call for evidence – Jointly owned leasehold properties​

26 March 2024

The Building Safety Act 2022 (BSA) provides protections for qualifying leaseholders from the costs associated with remediating historical building safety defects. The government is continuing to monitor the impacts of the current protections and has been made aware of a perceived issue in the qualifying criteria for the protections, for people who own their principal home jointly, and additional properties jointly. However, the department does not have enough data on the number of leaseholders this issue is impacting. As part of the policy development, this call for evidence seeks to understand the scale of the issue, and to consider whether any changes could be proposed by the government. The department would therefore like to have evidence from both leaseholders and landlords on who may be affected if this policy is changed.

This call for evidence will run to Friday 5 April 2024.
