Leaseholders are protected from the cost of removing unsafe Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding on high rise residential buildings. The remediation of over 50 per cent of privately owned high-rise residential buildings with unsafe ACM cladding is being paid for by building owners and developers, or through warranty or insurance claims, without passing the cost to residents. Government is providing £600 million to protect leaseholders in both the private and social sector from costs of removal of unsafe ACM, where other funding solutions cannot be found.
