Earlier this year, we offered for sale various flowcharts detailing some of the key processes which are contained within the Building Safety Act 2022 and subordinate legislation, and which were causing significant problems for practitioners.
These flowcharts, which were produced with the assistance of Andrew Butler KC and Annie Higgo of Tanfield Chambers, have been refined and now deal with the following topics:
Flowchart 1: Is a Building a Relevant Building?
Flowchart 2: Is a Defect a Relevant Defect?
Flowchart 3: Is a Lease potentially a Qualifying Leases?
Flowchart 4: Leaseholder Deed of Certificate – what steps does a landlord need to take to stop a lease from becoming a Qualifying Lease by default?
Flowchart 5: Landlord Certificate – timing, content and effect
Flowchart 6: – is a building a Higher Risk Building?
As well as explaining the processes which practitioners must follow to obtain the answers to these questions, the flowcharts explain why the questions matter and what their significance is in the wider scheme of this complex Act.
We are delighted to announce that a number of new flowcharts are available including:
Flowchart 7: Higher Risk Buildings and “Independent Sections”
Flowchart 8: Is a Person (X) an Accountable Person?
Flowchart 9: Is a Person (X) a Principal Accountable Person?
The cost for the provision of these flowcharts is as follows:
Each flowchart is charged at £250 plus VAT, or the full set can be purchased at a discounted rate of £2000 plus VAT.
Clients who have previously purchased our BSA Flowcharts on or before September 30, 2023, continue to have access to flow charts 1-6 in this series. However, should you wish to acquire our most recent flowcharts, specifically 7, 8, and 9, we are delighted to offer these at a discounted rate of £500 for all three when bought together as a bundle. To take advantage this offer, please reach out to us at [email protected].
These flowcharts and explanatory notes will only be accessible online, which will enable us to revise them as and when the legislation changes or when clarification is provided by Government on the application of the law as drafted or amended. Where revision takes place, revised versions of the documentation will be uploaded and subscribers notified. The latest versions of all documents will be available for download in the “my account” section under “downloads”.

Accordingly, they cannot and do not constitute legal advice, and no liability of any kind can be accepted by IQ Legal Training Limited or anyone associated with the preparation of the documents for any errors or omissions within them.
