star this property answer text <p>On 16 May the government announced that it will fully fund the removal and replacement of potentially dangerous ACM cladding on residential social housing buildings, which are over 18 metres tall and owned by social landlords. This commitment is estimated to cost £400 million.</p><p> </p><p>In the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the government also established a comprehensive building safety programme and made it clear that aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding on buildings over 18 meters which was not compliant with building regulations guidance should be remediated by the building owners. The government has provided £1m in financial support to help local authorities identify high-rise private residential buildings with unsafe cladding. This work will ensure that hazards in high rise residential buildings are addressed and the government continues to work closely with local authorities, building owners and leaseholder groups to establish what more can be done.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Community benefit societies which are not registered charities currently pay corporation tax on their profits, investment income and any capital gains. At present the government does not consider a specific exemption from corporation tax to be appropriate as there are alternative routes by which community benefit societies could access an exemption- most importantly registering as a charity if the relevant conditions are met.</p><p> </p><p>The business rates system also includes a number of reliefs and exemptions for registered charities. If a community benefit society is a registered charity then it would be potentially eligible for this support. And all community benefit societies will benefit from the reduction in business rates announced at Budget 2016, which is worth almost £9bn.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is determined that insurers should treat customers fairly and firms are required to do so under the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) rules. The FCA sets the conduct standards required of insurance firms which aim to ensure consumers are treated fairly. This includes ensuring fair access to insurance products for all consumers.</p><p> </p><p>The Chancellor has discussed the Grenfell tower disaster with leading industry representatives to get an understanding of how they may respond, and any possible impact on insurance for residents. The industry have said that it is too early to properly understand the implications, so have not yet made any changes to their underwriting models or pricing strategies.</p><p> </p><p>The Treasury has also been in contact with the relevant insurance companies reported to have refused home insurance for residents living in tower blocks. Both companies have assured officials that no individuals in the tower blocks have been refused access to home insurance as a result of the fire at Grenfell Tower, but we remain in regular contact with the insurance industry to understand how it may shape their view of fire risk. The Treasury will continue to monitor the situation and will investigate this matter further if it sees evidence of customers in tower blocks being treated unfairly.</p><p> </p>
