Families in towers with Grenfell-style cladding are being charged £2million to remove it — more than £20,000 per flat.

The 97 privately-owned Citiscape apartments have the aluminium composite material blamed for the 71 deaths in the West London fire.

They were initially told the bill estimate was £500,000 - and they now fear the latest figure could double to £4 million.

Residents of the blocks in Croydon, South East London, are being taken to a tribunal by management firm Port. A judge is expected to rule they must pay.

Flat owner Srikant Alla said: “The company that put up this cladding should be made to pay.”

So who should pay?

The company who supplied and placed the cladding needs to be sued by the residents..They need to get together and get a solicitor.

Re: Huge fire at West London tower block

I find it amazing. While I think that it's important to say that everyone deserves to live in safety, it's worth noting that this isn't just 60s or 70s era council block that Croydon Council slapped some cladding on so it looked nice, it is a privately owned block where people have frequently paid over £300,000 for 2 bedroom flats. Having accepted hundreds of thousands of pounds for each flat, I would hope that the building owner would feel obligated to spend a reasonable amount to ensure the safety of each resident. If necessary, they should sue the developer to recoup the costs.
