star this property answer text <p>Developers and housebuilders who sell the freehold of a house to a leaseholder after a sale, or who sell on the freehold interest to a third party may not be working in leaseholders’ best interests. Leaseholders wanting to purchase the freehold interest can find that they are faced with higher costs, along with significant legal costs, where they want to purchase the freehold after the point of sale. The Housing White Paper highlighted the Government's intention to improve fairness and transparency for these leaseholders.</p> more like this

If the screening tests indicate that such cladding would not meet the limited combustibility requirements of the current Building Regulations guidance, local authorities, housing associations and the fire and rescue service will determine the best course of action, communicating closely with residents.
