The Scottish Housing Regulator has announced that its new regulatory framework will increase the visibility of equality expectations on landlords by introducing equalities as a specific element of landlord self-assurance. 

The announcement echoes the commitment made by the Regulator in its Discussion Paper on the Regulation of Social Housing, earlier this year.

The new regulatory framework is currently being developed by the Regulator in conjunction with its stakeholders and formal proposals will be consulted upon later this year.
