The government has issued regulations under the Building Safety Act dealing with:

  • Leaseholder protection- The regulations deal, among other things, with the determination of the net worth of a landlord group and the landlord’s connection to the developer in relation to relevant works, in order to determine their liability for the remediation of historical safety defects, and the determination of the value of a qualifying lease;
  • Approved inspectors insurance- The regulations amend the 2010 Building (Approved Inspectors etc.) Regulations 2010 and remove the requirement for approved inspectors to declare they have insurance when submitting an initial notice, an amendment notice, a plans certificate or a final certificate.

See: The Building Safety (Leaseholder Protections) (England) Regulations 2022 (; The Building Safety (Leaseholder Protections) (Information etc.) (England) Regulations 2022 (; and The Building (Approved Inspectors etc.) (Amendment) (England) Regulations 2022 (;
