Revised directions to Regulator of Social Housing: tenant involvement and mutual exchange
Thursday 29th of June 2023
Between 16 February 2023 to 30 March 2023, we sought views on proposed Directions from the Secretary of State to the Regulator of Social Housing relating to tenant involvement and mutual exchange, using powers under section 197 of the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008. This document outlines the government’s response to the consultation.
The Social Housing White Paper included a commitment to introduce a proactive consumer regulation regime. We have reviewed the existing directions covering tenant involvement and mutual exchange to ensure they are suitable for the new regulatory framework.
Following the consultation, the government has decided to proceed to revoke the ‘Tenant involvement and empowerment’ and ‘Mutual exchange’ paragraphs of the Directions on Regulatory Standards and a new Direction is being issued to the Regulator of Social Housing.
The new Directions relating to tenant involvement and mutual exchange can be viewed at Revised Directions on tenant involvement and mutual exchange.
