From 2019 all social landlords must submit to the Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) an Annual Assurance Statement providing assurance that their organisation complies with the relevant requirements of chapter 3 of the Regulatory Framework. This includes regulatory requirements that apply to all social landlords and the Standards of Governance and Financial Management that apply to Registered Social Landlords (RSLs). The Statement should be made and submitted by the RSL’s governing body. Each landlord should confirm in its Statement its compliance with all of the relevant requirements at section 3 of the Framework. Where a landlord does not fully comply, it should set out in the Statement how and when it will make the necessary improvements to ensure compliance. These assurance statements require to be submitted annually by the 31 October each year from 2019. However, this year due to the pandemic (COVID19) the SHR extended the deadline until 30th November 2020.
