All housing associations and co-operatives are regulated by the Scottish Housing Regulator (the SHR). The SHR’s Regulatory Framework outlines the powers and duties of the SHR, as per the Housing (Scotland) Act 2010. The SFHA liaises closely with the SHR and represents members’ views in responding to any SHR consultations or the production of any SHR publications.
The Scottish Housing Regulator is currently reviewing its Regulatory Framework. This process will take place over the course of 2018, and began with a Discussion Paper in January outlining its initial thinking. The SFHA response to the Discussion Paper is available in the downloads section beneath this article, or by clicking on the link below:
SFHA will continue to consult with its members and liaise with the SHR during this process. A formal consultation will begin in Autumn 2018.
Regulation ensures the excellent performance and reputation of housing associations and co-operatives in Scotland and provides assurances to tenants, service users and lenders.
