This is a very daunting piece of fairly new law.  Local Authorities are still coming to grips with it. 

We cover this topic in some detail.

The new piece of legislation also comes with a new Department of Building and Housing.

We also provide you with a direct link to the Government legislation site where you can look up ALL Acts of Parliament and Regulations and Rules. An Act is also known as a Statute. A Regulation is also sometimes known as a Rule. This Government legislation site is still going through some teething problems. But you will be able to access all legislation and find specific Acts and Rules and individual sections.

Statutory Regulations
Local & Private Acts

The Building Act 2004 is a new framework for the regulation of building work, establishes a licensing regime for building practitioners, and sets performance standards for buildings.

Some of the measures in the Building Act came into force immediately on 30 November 2004.

This new Act repeals the Building Act 1991 and dissolves the Building Industry Authority. Administration of the Building Act will sit with the recently established Department of Building and Housing. This new department of Building and Housing will focus on improving the delivery of building and housing services to the public.

"A fun topic. I can remember when I was a lawyer's secretary. He had a wee figurine of a barrister on his desk with a sign on it saying "Sue The Bastards" but, then, he should know because he was a bastard too, but a very good lawyer. (name withheld)"
