Significant performance failures
If you are a tenant of a registered social landlord (RSL) such as a housing association or co-operative, or if you are a council tenant, you should report it to us. If we have not resolved it then you can report a significant performance failure (SPF) to the Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR).
A significant performance failure is where a social landlord:
- fails to meet the outcomes of the Scottish Social Housing Charter or outcomes agreed locally with tenants;
- has not reported its performance annually to tenants or the reported performance doesn't reflect actual performance;
- fails to meet the Scottish Housing Regulator's (SHR) Regulatory Standards; or
- the landlord's action(s), or failure to take action, puts tenants' interests at risk.
. The Scottish Housing Regulator website has more information on significant performance failures.
