Model Rules Review Reaches Final Stage

The review of the SFHA Model Rules has now reached the final stage, having received approval from the Scottish Housing Regulator and OSCR.   The revised Model has now been forwarded to the FCA for registration.   SFHA is hopeful that this will be a quick process but it is dependent on any further amendments that may be requested by the FCA.   We will keep members informed as this progresses and hope to be in a position to publish by the end of January. ​​Many thanks to everyone who fed into the review process, and a further member consultation on the Supporting Guidance to the Model Rules will begin in the next few days.
