Landlords are to be held to account more than ever before by tenants through measures such as scrutiny panels and increased support from the Ombudsman, thereby increasing the need for greater tenant engagement. What are you doing to achieve this and what tools can support this?
In the Queens Speech, Prince Charles stated the government would ‘improve the regulation of social housing, strengthen the rights of tenants and ensure better quality safer homes’. Whilst the content of the Housing Bill was already widely known within the sector and many RSL’s have been working towards fulfilling obligations towards the Bill, many are still finding their feet and considering best practice. Now that the Bill approaches the legislative stage, its realities will begin to take centre stage for tenants and associations alike.
Having worked with 50+ housing associations for over a decade, our engagement has shown that providing a platform to discuss sector issues, learn from the experiences of peers and demonstrate how digital strategies can help HAs combat everyday challenges.
To further support the sector, VerseOne are presenting a new series of Housing Bill 2022 Forums, focusing on its key outcomes, to learn and discuss how these can and are being tackled.
Landlords are to be held to count by tenants through measures such as scrutiny panels and increased support from the Ombudsman, to increase tenant engagement.
