answer text <p>We have worked with industry to design proportionate legislation that delivers real benefits to tenants and we’ll be ready to lay the Statutory Instrument introducing mandatory checks as soon as parliamentary time allows. This will make rented properties safer, so we’re encouraging landlords to comply early and get familiar with the changes.</p> more like this

answer text <p>This Government is committed to improving housing standards. Minister's have engaged with the APPG for Healthy Homes and Buildings, following the publication of their White Paper in October and have noted the Paper’s recommendations. We will continue to engage with the APPG and related stakeholders as we develop policy to build their views into policy. The Department has seen the number of private rented homes failing to meet the Decent Homes Standard fall 15 per cent since 2010 – a record low. <br> <br> We have also seen the number of social homes failing to meet the Decent Homes Standard decrease significantly. Our Department has also dedicated a chapter in The revised National Panning and Policy Framework includes a dedicated chapter on the creation of healthy and safe places. We have also launched the Social Housing Green Paper which asks if we should consider what constitutes a decent home.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Department has seen the number of private rented homes failing to meet the Decent Homes Standard fall 15 per cent since 2010 – a record low. We have also seen the number of social homes failing to meet the Decent Homes Standard decrease significantly.</p><p>Local authorities have powers under the Housing Act 2004 to review the Private Rented Sector stock and to tackle poor rented property conditions which may impact peoples’ health. They must take enforcement action where the most serious (category 1) hazards are present - this is usually assessed through the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS).</p><p>In October 2018 the Government launched a scoping review to consider whether the HHSRS should be updated and, if so, to what extent. This review has now reported, and I announced that there will be a comprehensive overhaul of the HHSRS to begin later this year.</p><p>In addition, the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act, which came into force on 20th March 2019, empowers tenants to take their landlords to court if they fail to address health and safety hazards. <br> <br>We have also launched the Social Housing Green Paper which asks if we should consider what constitutes a decent home.</p>

answer text <p>The Department published in April 2019 a Frequently asked Question on the Government website one of which answer the question “How do the Building (Amendment) Regulations 2018 affect buildings undergoing remediation?”</p><p>The requirement is that building work on such buildings must be carried out so that only materials which achieve European Classification A1 or A2-s1, d0 become part of an external wall or specified attachment (as defined in regulation 2) unless covered by one of the exemptions in the regulations.</p><p>This means that materials which are already part of the external wall, or are existing specified attachments, and are not becoming part of the wall are not covered by the ban (unless there is a change of use). However, during this process care must be taken to ensure that the building is no less compliant in relation to building regulation requirements than before the work was carried out (e.g. cavity barrier).</p><p>The full list of frequently asked questions is available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/building-amendment-regulations-2018-frequently-asked-questions/building-amendment-regulations-2018-frequently-asked-questions" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/building-amendment-regulations-2018-frequently-asked-questions/building-amendment-regulations-2018-frequently-asked-questions</a>.</p>
