Developer remediation contract

Government wrote to developers on 30 January 2023 asking them to sign a contract committing them to remediate unsafe buildings which they developed.

Applies to England



The government wrote to housebuilders and mixed-use developers on 30 January 2023 saying that it expected them to sign the newly published developer remediation contract by 13 March 2023.

Once signed, the contract requires developers to:

  • Take responsibility for all necessary work to address life-critical fire-safety defects arising from design and construction of buildings 11 metres and over in height that they developed or refurbished over the last 30 years in England.
  • Keep residents in those buildings informed on progress towards meeting this commitment.
  • Reimburse taxpayers for funding spent on remediating their buildings.

These requirements reflect a public pledge signed by 49 developers last year. Once signed, the contract makes the pledge commitments legally binding.

As of 1617 March 2023, 4142 developers have signed the contract.

Four developers who signed the pledge were subsequently found not to have developed buildings within the scope of the contract. Those developers have therefore not been required to sign the contract at this stage. They may be asked to sign the contract in future if information emerges indicating that they did in fact develop buildings which are in scope.

The government has made clear that eligible developers who refuse to sign the contract or fail to comply with its terms face significant consequences.
