The tenants of over 11,200 households in Angus now have access to the 2015 Landlord Reports on the performance of Scotland’s social landlords.
Independent body the Scottish Housing Regulator released its annual Landlord Reports on Monday, July 31.
The reports have been published for each of the nation’s social landlords, comprised of around 160 registered social landlords and 26 local authorities with housing stock, and are designed to help tenants hold their landlords to account.
Kay Blair, the chair of the Scottish Housing Regulator, said: “Following the launch of our first Landlord Reports last year, tenants told us they were a useful and accessible way to find out about their landlord’s performance when it comes to the things that matter most.
“Our online comparison tool lets tenants quickly see how their landlord performed this year, how that compares with last year and how it compares with other landlords across Scotland.”
Angus resident, Dawn Sinclair is a Blackwood Housing Association tenant and used the Scottish Housing Regulator Landlords Reports recently to compare her landlord against another who has offered her alternative social housing.
Dawn said: “The reports and web tool have been great resources for me to decide if I want to move into a property looked after by a different landlord as I was able to compare its performance against my own housing association.”
Tenants can read the Regulator’s reports, and access the online comparison tool, on the website www.scottishhousingregulator.gov.uk.
