The government is preparing to name and shame landlords on social media for breaching housing regulations.

He added: “Whilst we have only just seen the draft legislation, its contents are not surprising. social housing providers have had considerable notice of most of these changes, so the regulator for social housing is unlikely to be flexible with further time extensions to achieve compliance once the legislation is enacted. Social housing providers must act now.”
