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.
