The new consumer regulation regime is here

As of 1st April 2024, the Regulator of Social Housing has implemented a new consumer regulation regime, introducing a proactive approach to landlord inspections and an updated set of consumer standards. The new regime aims to put requirements in place to keep tenants safe in their homes, give them a voice, and respond promptly to address problems. 

Ensuring you understand the latest updates is crucial for making sure you are complying with the standards, for preparing for inspections and, most importantly, keeping your tenants safe. We’re here to help you navigate the new regulations and standards as well as identifying your next steps with upcoming landlord inspections and tenant satisfaction measures data returns.
