Building Safety Bill receives Royal Assent
The Government’s Building Safety Bill has received Royal Assent today.
The government faces “practical difficulties” in pursuing overseas-based construction product manufacturers and developers when it comes to getting them to contribute to the cost of remediating defective buildings, housing secretary Michael Gove has admitted.
Cladding companies could be sued and subject to fines for defective products under new powers proposed by the government that could also see developers and manufacturers who don’t pay for cladding remediation barred from the housing market.
