Regulator Strengthens Tenant Consultation Standard

The Homes and Communities Agency published the updated standard following the move to deregulate housing associations in April. The regulator requires housing providers to consult with tenants if they were considering changing their landlord or changing the management arrangements of their homes. Previously housing providers had to get the regulator’s consent before disposing of properties and as part of this process the regulator would check that an adequate tenant consultation had been carried out. However, this disposal consent was dropped in April as part of the government’s deregulatory package for the sector. Download the consultation outcome from the HCA website.
