Building Safety Act 2022

The Building Safety Act 2022 sets out safety requirements for landlords of higher-risk buildings.

Higher-risk buildings defined as are:

  • at least 18m or 7 storeys high,
  • with 2 or more residential units.
  • New and existing buildings

These buildings will be subject to a stringent new set of requirements including safety case reports and golden thread information.

Our housing stocks will experience a significant improvement in terms of safety with the adoption of every piece of legislation. The act makes ground-breaking reforms to give residents and homeowners more rights, powers, and protections – so homes across the country are safer.

It overhauls existing regulations, creating lasting change and makes clear how residential buildings should be constructed, maintained, and made safe.

The Act creates three new bodies to provide effective oversight of the new regime: the Building Safety Regulator, the National Regulator of Construction Products and the New Homes Ombudsman.

Together these changes mean owners will manage their buildings better, and the home-building industry has the clear, proportionate framework it needs to deliver more, and better, high-quality homes.

The safety rules cover the different stages of building:

  • design stage
  • planning stage
  • construction stage
  • whilst tenants and leaseholders live in a building

What are the building safety act key points?

The Building Safety Act introduces the Gateway approach for the buildings in scope. There will be no choice of Building Control provider and all building works, new build, extension, refurbishments will be subject to the control of the Building Safety regulator (BSR) and the Gateway Approach.

What the Act means for building owners

Duty holders such as the Principal Designer and Principal Contractor under the Act will be required to manage building safety risks, with clear lines of responsibility during the design, construction and completion of all buildings.

Accountable persons will need to demonstrate that they have effective, proportionate measures in place to manage building safety risks in the higher-risk buildings for which they are responsible.

Those who do not meet their obligations may face criminal charges.

The Building Safety Act is also clear that building owners and landlords will need to contribute to the costs of fixing their own buildings.
