Luminus Group Limited's grading under review

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 (3 February 2017) that Luminus Group Limited’s grading is 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 the investigation will be confirmed in an updated regulatory judgement, once completed.

Luminus Group Limited’s current grade is G1 and V2. The regulator is currently investigating a matter that calls into question the provider’s compliance with the governance element of the Governance and Financial Viability Standard.
