To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth on 11 April (HL6665), whether the commitment to provide lifetime tenancies in social housing extends to holders of tenancies in Grenfell Tower who had sublet their property and so were not resident at the time of the fire.

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea committed that all households who were living in Grenfell Tower and Grenfell Walk as their main home immediately before the fire will be offered a lifetime tenancy in social housing, and the Council has made clear this includes:

  • Council introductory or secure tenants;

  • Resident leaseholders;

  • Subtenants or lodgers of the above; and

  • Tenants of non-resident leaseholders.

The Government continues to support the Council to deliver this commitment.
