Keeping safe in your home

Safety in high-rise buildings

This information is for residents who are affected by the new building safety approach in the Government’s Building Safety Act 2022.

You will be affected if you live in a high-rise residential building – this is a building that either:

  • Is 18 metres tall or higher
  • Has 7 storeys or more

View a list of all buildings that are affected.

 

The Building Safety Act identifies new duty-holders, known as ‘Principle Accountable Persons’ (PAPs). Where we own the building, MTVH are the PAP.

For buildings where we are not the building owner, MTVH are not the Principle Accountable Person. This is the responsibility of the freeholder.

What MTVH must do to keep buildings safe

As the Principal Accountable Person, MTVH must do the following:

  • Prevent a building safety risk from happening. Building safety risks are defined as the spread of fire and/or structural failure.
  • Reduce the seriousness of an incident if one happens.
  • Register existing buildings with the Building Safety Regulator (BSR).
  • Register all new high-rise residential buildings before occupation.
  • Prepare a Building Safety Case to show we have assessed all building safety risks and taken all reasonable steps to control them.
  • Provide a Building Safety Case report to the BSR. This report identifies any major fire and structural hazards in the building. It shows how we are managing these risks correctly.
  • Apply for a building assessment certificate when directed by the BSR.

 

Where MTVH are the Principal Accountable Person, we have registered all of our high-rise residential buildings with the Building Safety Regulator.

What MTVH is committed to

  • Providing residents living in our high-rise residential buildings with building safety information about their homes and how we are managing any safety risks. Where MTVH are not the building owner, we will work jointly with the freeholder to protect residents, their homes, household members and visitors from any potential risk to their health and safety from smoke or fire.
  • Keeping residents informed of the steps being taken to keep their buildings safe and to ensure that all our buildings are safe.
  • Working together with residents to keep them and their visitors safe. We will be contacting residents to provide further information specific to your home.

 

How we include you in building safety decisions

We have written a Building Safety Resident Engagement Framework. It’s a document that explains how we will include you in building safety decisions.
