Leaseholders should not pay a penny

Responding to Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick’s announcement on cladding funding, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats Daisy Cooper said: “It is a scandal that the Tories have broken their post-Grenfell promises to leaseholders living in unsafe homes.

Daisy Cooper MP

“As Liberal Democrats, we’re pleased that our amendments and dogged campaigning to protect leaseholders from extortionate costs has helped force the Government to introduce new levels of support, but these proposals still leave a lot of questions unanswered for many thousands of leaseholders.

“Liberal Democrats are clear that leaseholders should not have to pay a penny to remove dangerous cladding or carry the cost of other fire safety defects that have occurred through no fault of their own.”
