The Regulator of Social Housing introduced fees from 1 October 2017 following a statutory consultation in 2016.

The regulator’s fee-charging powers are set out in section 117 of the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008.

In 2017 we introduced a Fees and Resources Advisory Panel alongside existing stakeholder engagement arrangements, as an advisory body to the regulator.

In addition, our annual Fees Statement sets out our business priorities and budget.

This guidance was updated in February 2018.
