Regulator of Social Housing - damp and mould
In November 2022 the Regulator of Social Housing wrote to social housing providers requesting assurance on addressing risks relating to damp and mould in tenants’ homes.
As not all of our homes met the relevant standard, we were required to self-refer ourselves to the Regulator of Social Housing.
Our self-referral letter to the Regulator of Social Housing is available to view
