Recent Consultations 

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 requires social landlords to consult tenants and take account of their views when making decisions about proposed rent increases and other housing activities. 

The Scottish Social Housing Charter sets the standards and outcomes that all social landlords in Scotland should aim to achieve when performing their housing activities. The Charter does not prescribe how landlords should consult tenants about proposed rent increases but it does contain 16 standards and outcomes.

Below you will find the most recent consultations that have taken place.
