Background

The building remediation fund allows Responsible Persons (e.g. building owners/ managing agents) to access funding to undertake building safety related surveys and subsequently produce a Building Remediation Passport.

In order to assess the scale of issues and provide balanced advice on options for any support for remediation, officials consider it essential to establish a consistent and high quality approach to surveying buildings. Consistent survey information will help us understand the scale and nature of problems, help prioritise next steps on a risk basis and enable us to plan and support work to address capacity issues in the sector that could hamper progress. It will also provide much-needed clarity to residents and building owners and give them confidence in the quality of the survey outcomes.

The EoI process will provide Responsible Persons an opportunity to submit important information and to demonstrate suitability, interest and availability in relation to potential future funding to identify and remediate the safety of these high rise buildings.
