Birmingham Leaseholder Action Group

We are an action group, set up in February 2020, to put pressure on those responsible for trapping leaseholders in unsafe buildings, following the Grenfell tragedy.

Cladding removal and replacement, and other fire safety issues raised by Grenfell, are resulting in life-changing bills for leaseholders, through no fault of their own.

And until repairs are made, leaseholders and tenants are trapped in unsafe buildings. Thousands of people are under incredible stress. From first time buyers, who stretched to get their foot on the housing ladder and are now #generationtrapped, through to retirees who now face living in poverty, or face bankruptcy and homelessness, with no chance to earn their way out of this crisis.

We are a group of leaseholders in Birmingham who are living in buildings with flammable cladding or other fire safety issues.

If you would like to be kept up to date about our activities; or you would like to join with us, please complete this form.

Optional Information

The following fields are optional. All information supplied to us will be kept confidential, this information is only used to help us to provide case studies to Government about the current impact of the cladding scandal on buildings in the West Midlands.
In the immediate aftermath of Grenfell, 24-hour security patrols were introduced in a number of buildings known to have similarly dangerous cladding. This was formalised with the publication in October 2017 of guidance by the National Fire Chiefs Council for buildings requiring ‘simultaneous evacuation’ as a result of fire safety defects.
Many building with Cladding and fire safety issues have had difficulty in securing insurance, or premiums have increase significantly.
An EWS1, has been created, to be provided to the RICS Member and Lender during the valuation process. The EWS form is a clear and transparent pro-forma completed by a fire expert, on behalf of the building owner, who will advise whether works are required.
Select each that apply.
