Complying with the Rent Standard – a framework for the future


Complying with the Rent Standard – a framework for the future

Virtual conference

Hear from the Regulator of Social Housing and check your progress in meeting the Rent Standard at our annual rent compliance conference.

The new Rent Standard came into force in April 2020 for both housing associations and stock-holding local authorities. This conference builds on our previous rent compliance events, looking at progress, pitfalls and the lessons we have learned since the Rent Standard was introduced.

Chaired by Emma Turay, Assistant Director of Rents & Service Charges at Notting Hill Genesis, our popular virtual event will cover:

  • Implementation of the rent standard:
    • Recap of the rules and regulations for varying rent types and different tenures
    • Identifying the lessons learnt and best practice
  • Sector risk profile to be published by the Regulator in the autumn – what will this mean?  What have we learned and implemented from prior publications?
  • The impact of Covid-19 and challenges around rent increases – approaches taken and how the rent flexibility requirement within the standard helped
  • How to engage with residents on rent strategies
  • Legal updates - looking to the future, what can we learn from notifications and judgments
  • Q&A session with the regulator
  • Launching the new rent compliance framework – how it can benefit your organisation.

Rent setting doesn’t have to be a complicated business – we’ll try and make it as simple and easy as possible.

  • Will Perry, Director of Strategy, and Marcus Roe, Head of Rents, Regulator of Social Housing
