Provide funding for one assessment per building. Focus on those with known risk factors first.

Improve Information on Safety of Homes

Green Light Buildings

Green light acceptable buildings to free them from fire safety and mortgage lending worries.

Establish the Remediation Costs

Develop Solutions for Remediation

Using this data and partnerships, develop remediation solutions that protect homeowners from unfair costs.

Monitor and Consider if New Legal Duties are Needed

Scottish Parliament should consider nominating a 'responsible person' for fire saftey in a building.
