Rent Standard consultation – Federation response

The Federation has responded to the recent consultation by the Regulator of Social Housing about the new Rent Standard, to take effect in April 2020.

5 August 2019

This consultation, although legally necessary, was of a very limited and technical nature because rent policy had already been determined by the Secretary of State’s direction on the subject in February.

Our response is confined to four procedural questions raised by the Regulator of Social Housing; neither the regulator's consultation nor the Federation’s response addresses the substance of rent policy.
