We are the independent regulator of RSLs and local authority housing services in Scotland. We were established on 1 April 2011 under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2010. We have one statutory objective, to:
“safeguard and promote the interests of current and future tenants of social landlords, people who are or may become homeless, and people who use housing services provided by registered social landlords (RSLs) and local authorities”.
We regulate social landlords to protect the interests of people who receive services from them. We do this by assessing and reporting on:
- how social landlords are performing their housing services
- RSLs’ financial well-being
- RSLs’ standards of governance
