An Economic Impact Assessment was published alongside the draft Building Safety Bill on 20th July 2020. An updated version of this assessment will be available when the Bill is introduced, setting out the cost and impact of all measures in the Bill, including those on leaseholders.

The Government is clear that leaseholders should not face unaffordable costs to ensure their homes are safe, and the Government has provided funding to speed up the removal of unsafe cladding.
