answer text <p>The Government does not collect this data and has made no estimate of the cost. There is no single method for the valuation of enfranchisement of leasehold houses or flats and the Government is aware of unfair practices, which have led to leaseholders paying substantial sums on the premium and costs associated with enfranchising.</p><p>This is why the Government has asked the Law Commission to review the enfranchisement process to make it simpler, easier, quicker and more cost effective. Its consultation, which included proposals for a unified valuation methodology, closed on 7 January 2019. The Law Commission will publish its final report later this year.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government’s priority is to ensure that residents of high-rise (above 18 metres) buildings with unsafe Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) are safe in their homes<strong>. </strong> It is in everyone’s interests, including those who live in neighbouring buildings, for unsafe buildings to be remediated as quickly as possible.</p><p>We have set up a comprehensive programme to oversee ACM remediation and have pushed owners and local authorities hard to identify and remediate unsafe buildings. We have also worked closely with local authorities and Fire and Rescue Services to ensure that interim safety measures are in place where needed, to ensure that buildings are safe until the cladding is replaced.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government has set up a comprehensive programme to oversee the remediation of buildings with unsafe Aluminium Composite Material cladding systems. In addition, my department published an advice note (available <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/building-safety-programme-update-and-consolidated-advice-for-building-owners-following-large-scale-testing" target="_blank">here</a>) on external wall systems that do not incorporate Aluminium Composite Material in December 2017 and updated it in December 2018. This advice makes clear to building owners that wall systems on existing buildings may only use materials, including insulation, that are of limited combustibility unless the system has achieved BR135 classification via a BS 8414 test. It reiterates that the clearest way to ensure safety is to remove any unsafe materials.</p> more like this
