Housing Ombudsman Self-Assessment
The Housing Ombudsman has published a new Complaint Handling Code, setting out good practice that will allow landlords to respond to complaints effectively and fairly.
The Code will act as a guide for residents setting out what they can and should expect from their landlord when they complain.
Torus is required to self-assess against the Code and publish the results. You can download your copy of the Torus Housing Ombudsman Self-Assessment here (pdf).
