It is the responsibility of the Applicant to make sure that they promptly provide all the information required for the Department to make a decision on their application. The result of an application will be communicated to the Applicant, and they should communicate this to leaseholders.

We will also improve the information available to leaseholders and residents about the Building Safety Fund with a new online service for them that will provide direct access to information about the stage their building has reached in the funding process.
