Scottish Housing Quality Standard

The Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS) was introduced in February 2004 and is the Scottish Government’s principal measure of housing quality in Scotland.

The purpose of introducing a minimum housing standard in Scotland is essentially to provide a ‘floor’ below which a property should ideally not fall. In the case of ourselves (Registered Social Landlords), the Scottish Government has set a policy target for those landlords to bring their stock up to every element of the standard (where applicable) by April 2015.

Below are some examples of works we have carried out to our properties in the last year
  • Energy Improvement Measures
  • Heating Replacement
  • Effective Insulation
  • Kitchen Facilities
