The Building Safety Act 2022 is an important and complex new piece of legislation which is causing confusion for conveyancers and other property professionals. Written by a team of practising barristers from Tanfield Chambers specialising in residential and commercial property work, this book provides a practical guide to the Act and focuses on key issues for property lawyers, including:

  • The impact of the Act on the recoverability of service charges
  • Use of the Landlord Certificate and Leaseholder Deed of Certificate
  • The role and relevance of Accountable Persons and Principal Accountable Persons
  • Remediation Orders and Remediation Contribution Orders
  • Building Liability Orders
  • Amendments to the Building Act 1984 and Defective Premises Act 1972 (including the extension of limitation periods)
  • Liability in relation to construction products
  • Applications to the First-Tier Tribunal under the Act

Containing two chapters written by qualified conveyancer and well-known legal trainer Ian Quayle, it covers all aspects of the Act, with a particular focus on the implications for purchasers, leaseholders, landlords and managing agents, tenants, property developers, and those advising them. It takes a practical, straightforward approach to explaining the complex issues arising from the Act.
