Get ready for the Building Safety Regulator
Shortly after the publication of the Building a Safer Future report in May 2018, the UK Government committed to the adoption of all recommendations in full. This included the creation of the Building Safety Regulator under the supervision of the Health & Safety Executive.
The Fire Safety and Building Safety bills, which form the enabling legislation for the new regulator, are currently proceeding through parliament.
Landlords will experience sweeping reforms and a far stricter enforcement regime. Residents should become more involved in the management of building safety and develop a greater level of trust in the system.
