  • Latest Government proposals and their impact on valuing and surveying blocks with cladding

John Baguley, Director of Technical, Risk and Compliance at Countrywide Surveying Services

This talk will look at what is it that lenders are focussed on right now in the world of residential secured lending and how valuers can give a better service to help the  lending process go smoothly for buyers.

  • Leasehold reform legislation
  • Climate change and sustainability issues
  • Assumptions and special assumptions – when are they reasonable?
  • When do we need to call for a specialist report?

THE BUILDING SAFETY ACT, BUILDING SAFETY REGULATOR AND THE NEW BUILDING CONTROL REGIME

The Building Safety Act has now become law. This is the biggest shake up of building safety regulations since 1984. Find out about the new planning gateways, the Building Safety Regulator, the new accountabilities and the new register of competent practitioners including registered building inspectors.

This session will examine:

  • The development and content of the Act
  • The role of HSE and the Building Safety Regulator
  • The new Gateways
  • The consequences for individuals, building control teams and the wider industry.
  • Qualification v competence
  • The 2022 changes to Building Regulations

Anna Thompson, FRICS FCABE Chartered Building Control Surveyor with over 35 years’ experience in public sector building control

PROFESSIONAL CONSULTANTS CERTIFICATES (PCCS) – ASSESSING THE QUALITY OF NEWLY RENOVATED, CONVERTED AND REPAIRED RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS

Professional Consultants Certificates (PCCs) in their various forms have been part of the sale and purchase of properties in the UK for many years. However, discussions and debates around the recent case of Large v Hart and Hart (2021) has revealed how unsure many practitioners were about what constituted a ‘PCC’ and how it could be properly used in the assessment of the quality of newly built, renovated, converted and repaired residential buildings.

This presentation will place PCCs in context and explore the wider issue of assessing the risk of hidden defects created by work of all types on residential property. The session will include:

  • A brief review of the statutory and regulatory framework that aim to control the quality of building work carried out on residential property
  • An outline of some of the ‘pros and cons’ of the common approval methods
  • An introduction to a ‘decision support protocol’ that may help you make professional judgements

Photographic case studies will illustrate this talk.

Phil Parnham,Chartered Building Surveyor

KEEPING UP WITH THE RETROFIT INSULATION REVOLUTION

Effectively insulating existing dwellings is not easy, cheap, or simple, so corners are often cut. This presentation will help surveyors identify obvious faults in retrofit insulation and understand the consequences of some commonly encountered shortfalls.

  • Understand the political and economic drivers for energy saving
  • Consider how retrofit insulation delivers its savings
  • Examine common defects in detailing and delivery
    • Internal wall insulation
    • External wall insulation
    • Cavity wall Insulation
    • Roofs
    • Subfloor voids
  • Explore the implications of poor retrofit
