Grenfell Tower Fire - Regulator's Letter
Posted by Linda Levin on August 24 2017 17:13:15
The Homes and Communities Agency - the regulator - has published a letter setting out its role and responsibilities in relation to regulating housing providers. The letter was sent to the national tenants' organisations and other agencies and is intended for all tenants.

There is nothing new in the letter - however, it is a reminder to registered landlords (mainly stock owning councils and housing associations) that tenant safety should not be compromised by the affordability of any necessary works.

The regulator is waiting for the reports from the Grenfell Tower inquiry before deciding what action to take against Kensington and Chelsea Council.

The HCA has promised further updates. Please follow this link to see a full copy of the letter: Link
