A new aspect of the Regulatory Framework which came into effect in April 2019 is the requirement for all social landlords to prepare an Annual Assurance Statement.

The AAS requires landlords to state they are meeting regulatory requirements and that they are compliant with the relevant regulatory standards, legal requirements and statutory guidance relevant to the sector. Any areas of non-compliance should be highlighted, alongside actions being taken to address this.

A wide range of arrangements are in place to ensure that we meet our regulatory and statutory obligations and to provide members of the Committee with the assurance required.

Our most recent AAS was approved by the Housing and Communities Committee in October 2023 and is available to view on the Scottish Housing Regulator website.
