Abstract

The social housing sector in England is made up of different types of Social Housing Provider (SHP) who own and manage houses for rent by people who have a need for social housing. As responsible landlords these organisations have a duty to provide homes that are safe for people to live in. This paper lays out the statutory requirements regarding the five high risk areas that SHPs are required to comply with: fire safety; legionella and water hygiene; asbestos management; gas safety and electrical safety. It also identifies some key questions that a SHP could use to check the level of its own compliance in these areas.
