Effective management of damp, mould and condensation (DMC) (condition, consequences and complaints) is currently one of the highest priorities for housing providers as they rework their business plans around it.
Boards are rightly focused on ensuring their organisations meet all regulatory expectations in relation to DMC. However, one which has been largely overlooked is how DMC issues impact the regulatory obligation for boards to certify annually that they are in compliance with the Governance and Financial Viability Standard’s requirement to comply with ‘all relevant law’.
Working with several key stakeholders including RSM and the National Housing Federation, we have devised comprehensive guidance to support the assessment of legal compliance in relation to DMC. Applying this guidance can enable housing providers to demonstrate they have taken ‘reasonable measures’ to understand and comply with relevant law and thereby certify compliance with the Governance and Financial Viability Standard.
This session will outline our newly-issued guidance and advise you on how to use it for maximum effectiveness, alongside practical advice and good practice in this area drawn from our sector expertise.
