Peter House and Painter House

When it announced the Building Safety Fund and Waking Watch Fund, the Government set a minimum height requirement of 18m to qualify for funding. Because of this your building is not eligible for relief from the Building Safety Fund or Waking Watch Fund. We share your frustration about this, and appreciate the uncertainty that it will be causing. The Government has indicated that it intends to set up a loan fund for leaseholders living in buildings affected by cladding, but which do not meet the 18m threshold. Once more information is published, we will share this with you.

Our aim is to minimise any costs that are passed on to leaseholders, but inevitably there will be some if the Government does not reverse its position. We are having ongoing discussions with the original developer, Hill Ltd, about what contribution they will make to the remediation works that are required.
