SHR Consultation on temporary changes to Regulatory Framework
The Scottish Housing Regulator is consulting on temporary changes to the Regulatory Framework in light of the ongoing Covid-19 situation.
The paper proposes temporary changes relating to:
- The Annual Assurance Statement requirement – highlighting that (whilst the deadline will remain 31 October for submission) it will be necessary to include a section pertaining to non-compliance resulting from Covid-19 and that further SHR guidance will be issued in this respect.
- The charter deadline for the charter report to tenants being extended from Oct to end of Dec (in line with the ARC submission deadline being extended to end of July)
- The SHR not updating engagement plans until March 2021.
The deadline for submissions to the SHR is Friday 14 August 2020. The SFHA will be submitting a response, and if you would like to feed into the SFHA response please contact Alan Stokes firstname.lastname@example.org
