On the 1st April 2019, a new regulatory framework and statutory guidance from the Scottish Housing Regulator came into force. The framework sets out regulatory requirements for local authorities and registered social landlords in Scotland, covering assurance and notification, performance against the Scottish Social Housing Charter, tenants’ and service users’ redress, whistleblowing and equality and human rights.
Main changes to the new regulatory framework include:
• a new requirement for all social landlords to produce Annual Assurance Statements; and
• a new duty for the SHR to publish a Regulatory Status for each registered social landlord from April 2020.
