The Regulator publishes guides for tenants and service users

The Scottish Housing Regulator has published 'How We Regulate: A guide for tenants and service users'. The guide has been written to help tenants, homeless people and other service users find out more about the work of the Regulator and also explains how they can go about raising concerns about their landlord.

  • If you are a tenant and are aware of a significant performance failure you should:
  • raise the issue with your landlord
  • give them a reasonable time to respond
  • give them a reasonable time to fix the failure.

If your landlord does not deal with the failure, or it agrees to do something and nothing happens, then you can report this to the Scottish Housing Regulator.  For more information please see the Icon for pdf Complaints and Significant Performance Failures leaflet [48.67KB] published by the regulator
