The following release was issued by the Scottish Housing Regulator:
“The Scottish Housing Regulator today published its new Regulatory Framework and statutory guidance for social landlords.
“The new Framework will go live from 1st April 2019. It sets out how SHR will regulate social landlords in Scotland.
“George Walker, the Regulator’s Chair, said ‘I am delighted to announce the publication of our new Regulatory Framework.
‘We will continue to keep our focus on safeguarding and promoting the interests of tenants, people who are homeless, factored owners and gypsy/Travellers at the heart of our work.
‘We will continue to empower tenants with easy-to-use information about their landlord, take action where we need to and promote a culture of assurance, openness and transparency.
‘We will support landlords to get the assurance they need that their organisation is well-run and so delivers good outcomes for tenants, people who are homeless and others who use their services.
‘Our new Framework is the culmination of a yearlong discussion with tenants, landlords, representative bodies, funders and others. Thank you to everyone who responded to our consultation, discussion paper or come along to one of our events across the country. Your feedback helped shape the new Framework and we’re grateful for your input.’
“The new Regulatory Framework is available on the Regulator’s website.
