Scottish Housing Regulator makes more information available about how it works

The Regulator today published new information as part of its ‘How we work’ series, which explains how it regulates across Scotland.

The publication also outlines how the Regulator appoints a statutory manager to a social landlord and governing body members to a registered social landlord. The Regulator can take this action if it needs to in order to address serious risks to tenants’ interests.

Christine Macleod, director of governance and performance said: “We developed our ‘How we work’ series because we want to be as open as possible about how we regulate so tenants and service users, landlords and others have a clear understanding of what we do, how we do it and why we do it.

This information note sets out what landlords and others can expect if we need to appoint a statutory manager or governing body members. We will only do this where it is the most proportionate way to tackle identified risks and protect the interests of tenants and service users. I hope landlords and others find this issue of How we work useful and I would like to thank the landlord representative bodies that have helped us develop it.”

The Regulator began its How we work series in April 2015, making more information available on how it assesses risk and how it deals with potentially serious issues in RSLs. The Regulator’s report and earlier issues of How we work are available on its website.
