Clarification on costs for leaseholders

Although we’ve made applications to the Government's Building Safety Fund, and to provide assurance to leaseholders, we can confirm that in respect of Eyot House, where Hyde is the current landlord, Hyde was the developer or was associated with the developer for the purposes of the Building Safety Act 2022. By ‘developer’ we mean that Hyde was the party that appointed Rok Group as the Principal Contractor who was responsible for designing and constructing the building.

The fact that Hyde was the developer means that we can’t pass on charges to leaseholders for the costs of remediation works to “relevant defects”. The works identified in this instance, are classed as “relevant defects”, as outlined in the Building Safety Act.

We can also confirm that the replacement of panels at Eyot will be carried out whether or not our applications are successful.

Building Safety Fund

Our applications (for blocks A and B, see below) have gone through the technical eligibility criteria for the replacement of the spandrel panels, and it has been confirmed that they meet the legal criteria for funding. The applications will now move to the next stage of the process, which is cost review. Once we agreed the cost with our contractor, we’ll provide them to fund processors. The application status is currently “Eligibility Confirmed”.  As soon as we hear from DLUHC on the next step, we’ll update you.

Block A is the Marine Street postal address, flats 1-52, and Block B the Sun Passage address, flats 53-114.

The Government is publishing updates on how Building Safety Fund applications are progressing in the third week of each month on the Building Safety Fund Leaseholder and Resident Service website pages.

Customers must use a code unique to their building to access the service. We’ve shared this code with customers, which and can be shared again via email [email protected].
