Tpas National Tenant Engagement Standards
We've brought together flexible principles for delivering excellent tenant involvement.
National Engagement Survey 2017
Our annual national survey helps us create a clear picture of what is happening in engagement to inform discussions on what should happen next and to track future changes in practice and opinions.
The Government require all registered providers to meet the regulatory standards including the Tenant Involvement and Empowerment Standard.
Speaking out can help change the way people understand tenant involvement.
Right to Buy
The Right to Buy is a legal right that entitles most local authority tenants, and some housing association tenants, to purchase the house or flat they live in with a discount off the market price.
The Housing Bill covers a range of policies around the availability, accessibility and cost of social renting, as well as the availability of home ownership to current tenants. Although these are not about tenant involvement, they are matters of concern to many involved tenants.
We actively participate in Government consultations on behalf of our members. Below is information on current, open and concluded consultations.
