All high-rise residential building must be registered with the Building Safety Regulator by 30 September 2023. 

Keep reading as we explain how to register your building and the exciting changes to our property management software, INDIGO.

Legal requirements for property owners and managers 

Those responsible for the safety of high-rise buildings now have only two months to register their properties with the Building Safety Regulator or face prosecution.

The Building Safety Regulator was established in 2022 to protect high-rise residents from unsafe building practices in response to the Grenfell Tower fire. Under the Building Safety Act, high-rise residential buildings which are 18 metres tall or higher, or at least seven storeys, with two or more residential units, are defined as ‘higher-risk’.

Across England there are approximately 12,500 of these ‘higher-risk’ buildings and the new regulator requires all of them to be registered, with a named person responsible for maintaining their safety.

Registering buildings in scope is a legal requirement and owners and managers who fail to comply by end September 2023 will be investigated and may face prosecution.
