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.

    Tenants of Registered Providers do not have a legal right to exchange unlike Secure Local Authority tenants who enjoy a Right to Exchange under the provisions of the Housing Act 1985. For tenants of RP's their rights reagrding exchanging will therefore be found in the detail of their contract (tenancy) with their landlord.

    No they shouldn't, they should build new homes or invest in current stock improvements

    You are not being bullied, the council is fulfilling its legal duty, although perhaps they have not explained this well enough?

  • From Housing Troll, 04/04/2014 3:40 pm in Mutual Exchange Withholding of Consent to Exchange

    Yes. It may well be the case the son succeeded due to a legal or contractual term, depending on the tenancy agreement. Perhaps it was even a policy decision which did not take the adpatations into account (unlikley but possible).

  • From Eve Steadman, 25/03/2014 6:51 am in Terrible service from housing assoc

    Further to my previous post: I would like to form a contact/pressure group of Metropolitan residents (South), which includes my own area, Cambridge. Please spread the word and provide ideas as to how all those residents may be contacted, and how we could establish communication independedently of this forum. Do many or any residents read Metropolitan's Facebook page?

    Many thanks for your reply, much appreciated

  • posted Anonymously, 24/03/2014 10:29 am in Service Charge Increase Legal? Moral?

    Legal: It is alawys a mistake to think of change of service charge cost as an increase - is it the correct cost for the services provided? & are those costs reasonable (i.e. for the service you recieve are the costs in the right ball park)

    Enlightening.

    Sara, you'll impress if you show you've researched a topic and part of the job that's new to you, and ask intelligent questions about how that organisation manages risk, compared to your research.
