New Consumer Standards Consultation – Regulator of Social Housing

The Regulator of Social Housing (Opens in a new window) are seeking views on their proposed updated consumer standards which set out the specific expectations and outcomes that all registered providers, including the Council, will be expected to achieve. The Regulator will be seeking assurance against these, and anticipate that they will apply from April 2024. 

The four proposed standards are:

  • The Safety and Quality Standard
  • The Transparency, Influence and Accountability Standard
  • The Neighbourhood and Community Standard
  • The Tenancy Standard

As part of the consultation, they would also like your views on a draft Code of Practice. This will give examples of the sorts of things landlords should be doing to ensure they meet the standards.
