Tenants and landlord should agree the report to the Regulator, not tick boxes.
If tenants are not shown the report till it is completed, will Landlord alter the Report at the behest of Tenants or will Tenants have to put in a Report with their objections.
In many of the outcomes the word "content" should be replaced by 'satisfied'. Content is not strong enough.
Even though the Regulator is independent, "they must have teeth".
There was a serious problem in our area whch could not be resolved by staff from the Scottish Government Housing Division. Tenants must be able to directly approach the Regulator, not to have to go through lower staff, a 'middleman' or the Ombudsman or the Audit Commission before getting access to the Regulator. Tenants must be able to get action quickly, not months or years down the line.
Accountability is extremely important.
Landlords must have a dedicated TP Officer to work with and support tenants.

It won't take long, and you will be able to join the community, post your comments about the discussion paper, respond to the comments of others, and discuss the Charter with Scottish Government officials, tenant representatives, housing professionals, and others with an interest in social housing.
Your thoughts and suggestions could influence what is in the Charter when it goes before the Scottish Parliament for approval this autumn.
After you post your message, other people can join the conversation by responding to your comment, and can click on the 'I like this comment' button to support it.
We have suggested a number of possible outcomes in the discussion paper - covering allocations, repairs and maintenance, customer participation and so on. It may be easier for others to respond if you post separate comments for each outcome you want to talk about.
Try not to make your comment too long. People are more likely to read and respond to shorter, to-the-point comments. We don't edit comments, so your suggestion will appear as you write it.
Please treat other posters with respect and do not use bad language. Disagreement is part of conversation, of course, but others are entitled to voice their opinion without abuse. You may want to read our moderation guidelines before posting.
We hope you won't have any trouble registering or logging-in. If you do have any difficulty, please let us know, and we will do our best to fix things as soon as we can.
