Background – LUHC Regulation of Social Housing report, 20 July 2022

The LUHC Committee report (also see news item) said that the condition of some social housing in England has deteriorated so badly as to be unfit for human habitation, and social housing providers must significantly improve their complaint handling process.

The Committee’s Regulation of Social Housing report addressed a series of issues relating to the supply, quality and regulation of social housing in England. Social housing is housing rented at below-market rates by housing associations, local authorities and private providers.
