SHR’s Landlord Groups


23 November 2022

We have established two groups to act as standing forums of senior people from Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) to discuss regularly with us important issues in social housing in Scotland. We believe that it is important for us to engage regularly with our stakeholders, and particularly those we regulate. In this way we are best placed to understand the challenges faced by, and the concerns of, those we regulate.

We will work with three groups of landlords: one with a specific rural and island focus; one for landlords operating principally in urban areas; and the existing group for systemically important landlords. Participants in the groups represent the range of RSLs from across Scotland, and the membership of each group will be refreshed after a reasonable period of time. These groups supplement our engagement with landlord representative bodies, including through our participation in the landlord forums organised by the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations.

We will publish blogs after each of our group meetings, you can read these here.
