Grading under review for two more housing associations - Habinteg and Manningham

The GUR lists providers being investigated for an issue that may result in non-compliant grades for the governance and/or financial viability standard.


The Homes and Communities Agency reports today (13 December 2016) that regulatory gradings for both Habinteg Housing Association Limited and Manningham Housing Association Limited are currently under review.

The HCA’s social housing regulator notifies that a provider’s grading is under review when its compliant grade (G1 and G2 for governance, V1 or V2 for viability) is being investigated in relation to an issue that may result in a downgrade to a non-compliant grade (G3 or G4 for governance, V3 or V4 for viability).

The outcome of each investigation will be confirmed in an updated regulatory judgement for each provider, once completed.

The current grades for both housing associations are G1 and V1. The regulator is currently investigating a matter that may impact on Manningham Housing Association Limited’s and Habinteg Housing Association Limited’s current published compliant governance gradings.
