The Department has made no such assessment.

All registered providers of social housing must comply with the regulatory standards set by the independent Regulator of Social Housing. This requires landlords to provide a cost-effective repairs and maintenance service, that responds to the needs of tenants, offers choices, and has the objective of getting repairs and improvements right the first time.
