The Building Safety Act 2022

Published on 17 April 2023

Our Construction and Real Estate team have prepared a user-friendly guide to the Building Safety Act 2022.

The Act overhauls existing regulations, creating lasting change by establishing the framework of how buildings should be constructed, maintained, and made safe. The Act also delivers far-reaching protections for tenants and residents with an ambitious toolkit of measures that will hold those responsible for building safety defects to account. As such it is important that all organisations with exposure to the built environment are aware of the implications of the Act.

Our client guide aims to provide a high level visual summary of the Act, and lead you step by step through the key changes and highlighting what it means for you.

Although the guide identifies the key elements of the Act, as the building safety regime will be implemented over the next two years through an ambitious programme of secondary legislation, our Construction and Real Estate team are available to keep you updated and provide expert guidance on how the Act could impact you, so please do let us know if you have any queries or wish to discuss the Act in any more detail.
