AIUI, there are a lot of people who own flats leasehold, whose landlords are already charging them for things like round-the-clock cover by fire marshals and have said that they will not pay for the cladding to be removed. I don't think any amount of huffing and puffing by the government will change that. This means there are people living in flats which are both unsafe and worthless without expensive repairs, and in many cases will still have a whacking mortgage outstanding.
