To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, whether the Government requires each responsible entity to follow a section 20 procurement process under the 1985 Landlord and Tenant Act in relation to cladding remediation; and what guidance his Department has issued to those entities on the requirement for that process.

The private sector remediation fund will protect leaseholders from bearing the cost of remediation of unsafe ACM cladding. Applicants to the fund are not required to carry out a section 20 consultation with leaseholders. Applicants should take their own legal advice on this.
