Suppose to be the Ultimate Tenant Scrunity Tool.  WHAT IF TENANT NOT ALLOWED TO GET INVOLVED

The principal role in scrutinising landlord services and intervening where consumer standards are not met will fall to others – tenants’ panels, MPs and elected councillors.

Aside from the regulator’s backstop role in respect of consumer regulation, some of the consumer standards are changing. There will be more focus on local mechanisms to resolve complaints and disputes. The scope for new tenancy agreements needs to be reflected. There is a need for new requirements in respect of tenant mobility and the increased scope for tenant involvement in the repair and maintenance of their homes.

The regulator’s principal role will be the economic regulation of private registered providers. In large part there is continuity from the existing economic standards. The regulator will continue its commitment to the co-regulatory approach, emphasising that boards are responsible and accountable for meeting their organisation’s objectives and the regulator’s standards. And the regulator will retain its focus on the proper governance and financial viability of providers.

The regulator will also have an expanded role on value for money in private registered providers. In future, the regulator expects boards to have a clear view of their risk appetite and associated risk management strategies, an informed view of their cost base and the factors affecting it, a strategy for making best use of their assets, and a plan for improving VFM that has been developed in a transparent way with input from stakeholders. In due course the regulator’s findings on this will be reflected in regulatory judgements.

    Just to point out about "one of society's most vulnerable" : Addiction is an illness. Now, some addicts do terrible things and cause havoc. If this is the case then eviction should follow, but only after a recommoendation that the said addict go into recovery. There is a big difference between an active addict and someone clean and sober and causing no trouble. The second is a vulnerable person deserving of support. The first is generally a neighbour from hell.

  • From TrackDay, 27/08/2014 4:47 pm in What makes some estates worthy of regeneration while a lot are being demolished?

    Hi, first question last.  Park Hill Flats was one of the first of its type to be developed in England in the early 1960s.  The back to back terraced pre 1919 houses it replaced were highly unpopular.  The vision of Streets in the Sky had not been sullied by bad mangement, poor (in some cases) construction and thermal insulation, and anti-social behaviour.  As a result the flats were very popular when they first opened, and even up until the late 1980s many of the original tenants were still living there.  Later developments of similar flats in Sheffield failed to ...
