Fire risk assessments: how often must they be done?
There are no specific time periods in law for how often fire risk assessments must be carried out or reviewed....
In 2020 the government announced the £1bn Building Safety Fund to cover the cost of the remediation of unsafe non-ACM cladding systems (including, for example, certain types of other metal composite or High Pressure Laminate panels) on buildings that are 18 metres and over in high rise residential buildings in England.
The fund is aimed at making sure tenants, leaseholders and residents living in buildings covered by the fund are safe and feel safe by remediating unsafe non-ACM cladding systems.
The fund meets the cost of remediating non-ACM cladding systems where building owners (or other entities legally responsible for making buildings safe) are unable to do so. The fund will address some of the barriers to remediation being carried out quickly.
On 10 February 2021, the government announced a further £3.5bn investment for the remediation of unsafe cladding on high rise residential buildings in England.
If you are a leaseholder or resident of a building in the Building Safety Fund, find support as a leaseholder or resident of a building in the Building Safety Fund (BSF) process.
