Under that new framework it also published Engagement Plans for all RSLs, including Homes for Life. We have complied with the SHR's request to submit our current Business Plan and supporting documents to SHR by the end of May 2019.

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 made significant changes to tenant's rights and the way landlords allocate their housing. The changes started to take effect from May 2019. Read about these changes HERE
