Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS)
In order for our properties to meet the Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SQHS), they must be:
- complaint with the Tolerable Standard
- be free from serious repair
- be energy efficient, healthy safe and secure
- have modern facilities and services.
Apart from some allowed exemptions (for example hard to treat properties or off gas grid) and abeyances (social reasons, for example a tenant refusing access), all of our houses achieved the SHQS in March 2015, as required by the Scottish Government.
