Law update – The Building Safety Act 2022

3rd July 2023

The Building Safety Act 2022 has now been introduced, it includes range of changes to the law and a new regulatory framework for higher-risk residential buildings.

The Act is extensive; it also covers:

  • Fire Safety Order in workplaces and other premises
  • Limiting residential leaseholder liability for defective cladding in existing buildings
  • Powers to prohibit developers from carrying out development if they have failed to contribute to the remediation of their existing defective building.

Prescriptive sales and re-gearing will also be affected.
