13th September 2023 at 2:00 pm - Online

The Building Safety Act incorporates Leaseholder Protection provisions relating to flats in buildings that meet the definition of a “Relevant Building”. The provisions in the Act and lenders requirements arising from it are resulting in significant issues for residential conveyancers and their clients.

• the meaning of the key terms in the BSA 2022, namely:
o Qualifying leases and leaseholders
o Relevant buildings
o Relevant defects
• Leaseholder and Landlords Deeds of Certificate
• UKFML Handbook Para 5.14.17: Building safety requirements
• Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 – duties of the “Responsible Person”
