To ask Her Majesty's Government how they will respond to the refusal of the freeholder of the Northpoint building in Bromley to pay for the replacement of combustible cladding on that building.
I am very concerned about the position the residents at Northpoint find themselves in through no fault of their own, and I am disappointed that the freeholder has not yet committed to doing the right thing and protecting leaseholders from the costs of remediation. The Secretary of State has consistently set his strong expectation that costs should not be passed on to leaseholders, and he has written to the building owner and other parties at Northpoint to make clear that he expects them to fund the work. He has asked them to find an acceptable solution urgently. We are considering various options for ensuring costs are not passed on to leaseholders.
