Introducing Con-versations, a new podcast from Eversheds Sutherland, in which members of our construction team discuss leading topical issues affecting the market.  

In our first episode we will be discussing the revised limitation periods under the Building Safety Act 2022. 

Episode 1: Building Safety Act 2022 – Limitation Periods

With effect from 28 June 2022, the Building Safety Act amends the limitation periods for certain types of claim, and introduces new rights of action with limitation periods that are much longer than those typically seen under construction contracts.  

Construction Professional Support Lawyer Gemma Irving talks with Nick Pinder, Kate Hencken and Jennifer Hurley in our construction disputes team to find out what this means and how clients can respond to these changes.
