Who are we and what do we want?
BrumLAG is a voluntary group of leaseholders affected by the cladding and building safety scandal in Birmingham and the wider West Midlands, 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. 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 face living in poverty, or face bankruptcy and homelessness, with no chance to earn their way out of this crisis.
We are active supporters of the End Our Cladding Scandal campaign, which sets out 10 steps calling on the Government to fix the cladding and building safety crisis.
