LEASE response to ‘Building a Safer Future: proposals for reform of the building safety regulatory system’

We welcome the opportunity to provide our formal response to the consultation paper entitled: ‘Building a Safer Future: proposals for reform of the building safety regulatory system’. We wish to highlight our standpoint is that of an organisation which prioritises the interests of residential leaseholders and to ensure those are adequately promoted and protected as the reform programme is taken forward.

As such we have confined our response to those consultation questions listed in Annex G we consider are relevant to our remit and fall within our area of expertise.

We welcome the government’s plans to take forward the Hackitt proposals on building safety reform and note the intention of the proposals, if implemented, is to overhaul significantly the current building safety system during construction and occupation with the object of ensuring accountability over the life-span of the regulated buildings.
