Building Safety Bill update - April 2022


Share

A revised version of the Building Safety Bill was published in Hansard on 5 April 2022, following its Second Reading in the House of Lords and the completion of the Report Stage. 

The amended Bill features major changes to the proposed regulatory regime for building safety, as well as incorporating Housing Secretary Michael Gove’s announcements in February 2022 to make developers responsible for funding remediation costs to defective buildings.

The Bill has had its Third Reading in the House of Lords and is scheduled to be considered by the House of Commons on 20th April 2022. The House of Commons may accept the amendments proposed by the House of Lords or propose further amendments. The Bill is expected to receive Royal Assent by May-June 2022.

Trowers & Hamlins is committed to helping our clients navigate the new building safety regime and prepare effectively for implementation. With that in mind, we have put together an update which can be found here.
