Applies to England
Who the service is for
The BSF Leaseholder and Resident Service is for residents and leaseholders of buildings in the BSF application process.
BSF applications are for buildings over 18 metres high with external cladding. The fund is to address fire safety risks associated with the cladding.
The service is not for residents and leaseholders:
of buildings in the Cladding Safety Scheme (CSS).
of buildings that will be fixed by developers who have signed the developer remediation contract.
What the service provides
The service gives high-level updates on BSF applications and provides standard information at key milestones in the process.
The service is designed to help you get more detailed updates from the person or organisation responsible for your building or their managing agent.
Accessing the service
To access the service you need a unique building code. This code should have been sent to you in a letter from:
- the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC)
- the person or organisation responsible for your building or their managing agent
Or directly from:
- the lead leaseholder in your building
Please do not share the building code or information about the building with others outside your building.
How to get your building code
If you have not received your building code, contact the person or organisation responsible for your building or their managing agent. You can use our letter template (DOCX, 21KB) to contact them.
How to report problems with your building code
You can tell us if you have a problem with your building code by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frequency of updates
Information on the progress of BSF applications is updated every month. You can find the date of the last update and next update at the bottom of the service portal page.
If the update doesn’t change, this indicates that the application hasn’t progressed to the next stage.
If the information provided is not correct, please email: email@example.com.
Where to get more specific information
The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) expects the person or organisation responsible for your building to keep you regularly informed. As a minimum they should give you specific information about your building at key milestones in the application process and during work on your building.
The individual or organisation responsible for your building is formally known as the ‘responsible entity’. They could be:
- the freeholder
- head leaseholder
- right-to-manage company
- resident management company
- registered provider of social housing such as a local authority or housing association
You can find their details at the top of your monthly update on the service portal.
In some cases, the responsible entity will nominate a managing agent to manage the application and provide you with updates. If this is the case, their details will also be shown at the top of your monthly update on the service portal.
Reporting problems with getting information
The person or organisation responsible for your building or their managing agent must update you regularly. For details on what you should expect see:
You can tell us if you have a problem getting further information about your building by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome feedback from leaseholders and residents as this helps us to improve the information you receive.
Please take five minutes to complete our online feedback form to tell us about your experience of accessing information about the BSF.
