Scottish Housing Regulator
As a registered social landlord (RSL) Rosehill is regulated by the Scottish Housing Regulator. The Scottish Housing Regulator was established on 1 April 2011 under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2010. Its objective is to safeguard and promote the interests of tenants and others who use local authority and RSL housing services. The Regulator operates independently of Scottish Ministers and is accountable directly to the Scottish Parliament. It assumed its full regulatory responsibilities on 1 April 2012. The Regulator consists of the Chair and eight Board members. More information about the Regulator can be found on its website at www.scottishhousingregulator.gov.scot
We have consisently been recognised as a very good performer. We are required to make annual submissions to the Regulator on our performance over a range of activities.
The Charter, which was first launched in April 2012, was reviewed during 2016 with the revised Charter being effective from April 2017. It sets out standards and outcomes that social rented landlords are required to meet. The Scottish Housing Regulator is responsible for monitoring and regulating landlords' performance in relation to meeting the Charter's standards and outcomes. As part of this, each year landlords must provide information on their performance against the Charter's standards and outcomes to the Regulator. This is commonly referred to as the ARC. The regulator publishes a landlord report every August our latest version was published in August 2019
In addition to submitting information to the Regulator on our performance against the charter we also report a variety of other information. A full set of audited accounts are reported for each financial year and all our stock information is submitted.
From October 2019 all Social Landlords Management Committee's have to submit an Annual Assurance Statement to the regulator. This provides assurance that organisations comply with the relevant requirements of chapter 3 of the Regulatory Framework. This includes regulatory requirements that apply to all social landlords and the Standards of Governance and Financial Management that apply to Registered Social Landlords (RSL's). Our first Annual Assurance Statement was published in October 2019.
