Research project to identify and expose the legal gaps exposed by the Grenfell fire

The University of Bristol has been awarded a grant by Shelter to conduct a research project to identify and expose the legal gaps exposed by the Grenfell fire.

This research project will use a survey method to address three objectives:

  1. To set out clearly the gaps in current legislation which may make housing less safe and/or prevent households from remedying problems
  2. To set out where lack of enforcement undermines existing legal protections
  3. To identify legal remedies to strengthen protection for tenants.

The researchers are seeking evidence from renters and owner-occupiers, lawyers and other professionals involved in looking at the conditions of accommodation, and landlords (social and private). Please do contribute if you can. The survey can be found online here.

Giles Peaker is a solicitor and partner in the Housing and Public Law team at Anthony Gold Solicitors in South London. You can find him on Linkedin and on Twitter. Known as NL round these parts.
