The Final Report of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety, which was published in May 2018, identifies all multi-occupancy high-rise residential properties which are 10 stories high or more as being ‘higher-risk residential buildings’. It states that there are between 2,000 and 3,000 of these buildings currently in existence. This is calculated according to information provided by Land Registry and Ordnance Survey. An explanation of the data sources can be found in Appendix C of the Review:
