Abstract

Notes the continuing need to empower tenants of tower blocks to identify fire safety issues relevant to their homes. Reviews the development of the Fire Safety Checklist to assist them, key provisions of the consultation document "Building a Safer Future", whether implementing the private right of action for breaches of building regulations under the Building Act 1984 s.38 would improve efficiency and whether it should have retrospective effect.
