The Building Safety Act 2022 is complex with 18 sets of secondary regulations so far, and more to come. 

Throughout November 2023, we ran a webinar series to break down the complex legislation into specific aspects of the Act and what that means in practice. 

The series is aimed at those who work for local authorities or social housing. However, others such as landlords and developers may also find it of interest.  

Further details on the topic of each webinar is listed below, including the link to watch on demand.
