This online webinar forms part of Gatehouse Chambers’ Behind the Façade Series. The talk will look at claims against contractors and professional consultants.
Paul Reed KC, Simon Kerry and Michael Levenstein will consider recent changes in the legal landscape affecting professional consultants and building contractors in the context of cladding disputes. In particular, they will review the Government’s Building Safety Bill aimed at strengthening the current regulatory framework by amending the Defective Premises Act 1972 and extending limitation periods for claims arising under the DPA 1972 and the Building Act 1984. They will also consider the extent to which these changes widen the duties owed by construction professionals, contractors and third parties (eg, landlords, freeholders, etc.) and the sort of evidence likely required in order to establish liability at trial.
