The Grenfell Tower tragedy led to calls for a complete overhaul of the law regulating the safety of high-rise residential buildings.

After extensive public consultation, we now have a clearer idea as to what the new laws will entail.

This live broadcast session will consider the latest developments affecting apartment buildings. It is aimed at professionals involved in the sale and purchase of apartments and the management of high-rise blocks.

As there are usually regular developments in this area of the law, the content is liable to change (e.g. as and when the government announces new reform measures).

This live session will provide the latest information at the time.
