About the Rent Compliance Hub

The Social Housing Rent Standard applies to both housing associations and stock-holding local authorities. HQN’s Rent Compliance Hub helps you to stay up-to-date with the latest information, legislation and guidelines.

Setting rents for social housing used to be quite simple. But as we provide more homes across different tenures, understanding the rules and regulations for varying rent types has become a complicated business.

Our Rent Compliance Hub provides you with everything you need to know about the Rent Standard – including an exclusive compliance framework – while also illuminating best practice and filling a knowledge-sharing gap in this specialist area.

Membership of the Rent Compliance Hub is free to members of the Housing Quality Network, Housing Finance Network, RIEN and the Housing Management Network. For more information, please contact [email protected].
