    The measure is a victory for the Daily Mail, which has been running a campaign to End The Cladding Scandal and safeguard leaseholders from costly repairs.

    到现在, they have been liable for bills of up to £150,000 each to fix unsafe cladding and other defects.

    他加了: ‘Hundreds of thousands of innocent leaseholders now have the legal protection they rightly deserve, freeing them from a financial burden they should never have faced.’ In his letter to freeholders and managing agents, Mr Gove said he was ‘concerned’ agents are still attempting to bill leaseholders for repairs.

    他加了: ‘From tomorrow, anyone who chooses to breach the statutory protections will be committing a criminal offence. Individuals involved in such criminal activity could face up to ten years in prison, in addition to the consequences for their companies.

    ‘Criminal exploitation of leaseholders will be treated as a matter of the utmost seriousness.’

    Mr Gove said a new recovery strategy unit would identify and pursue those who are culpable. Earlier he launched a renewed attack on the ‘cartel’ of developers, accusing them of building ‘shoddy’ homes.

    The minister told GB News that ‘some volume house builders have been producing homes that are shoddy and low quality’.

    But Labour MP Marsha de Cordova said there was still no deadline to fix fire safety issues in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire and criticised the Government for ‘dodging its responsibilities’.

    The housing committee has previously warned ‘too many leaseholders will fall through the cracks’ of Mr Gove’s plans. MPs said it leaves some buy-to-let landlords and those in blocks under 11m high liable for bills of up to £15,000 each.
