The recent Supreme Court decision has excited us here at SAY, after joining our associates across the industry in breathing a huge sigh of relief. The FirstPort Property Services Ltd v Settlers Court RTM Co Ltd  UKSC 1, [Settlers Court], should not be underestimated, and goes a long way to bringing back assurance to Landlords and Developers that control over estates will be retained in the event of one or more buildings exercising their right to manage.
On 10th January, Michael Gove addressed the Commons to discuss the ongoing issues surrounding cladding remediation.
In a brilliant start to the year, SAY’s co-founder Debra Yudolph has been named by EG as one of BTR’s 50 most influential individuals!
We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded Consultancy Practice of the Year at the RESI Awards 2021. The judges commended SAY for our support for new talent and employees as well as our new instructions – two things which we have focused incredibly hard on as a business this year. SAY has previously won Consultancy of the Year in 2017 and 2019.

If you are a developer, landlord or investor with an interest in a residential or mixed used scheme with two or more apartments, then the Building Safety Bill and the Golden Thread Regulations will apply to you.
It will have profound consequences for the UK construction and leasehold sectors, fundamentally changing the nature of evidencing to the Building Safety Regulator and to residents.
Introduction from Debra Yudolph, Partner at SAY
Our homes are our sanctuary and as a result of the pandemic, we have found ourselves demanding more of our homes and spending more time at home. There has never been a time when a well-designed and effortlessly functioning home has been more important because we are demanding so much more of them. Homes are now places where we work, study, exercise, virtually socialise and of course, eat, relax, and sleep!
