Over 16,000 social housing tenants across West Dunbartonshire can now look up their landlord to see how they compare to others across Scotland.

The reports, which are now in their sixth year, are designed to help tenants hold their landlords to account.

George Walker, the chair of the Scottish Housing Regulator, said: “It’s good to see the continued strong performance from Scotland’s social landlords this year. They’ve maintained performance across the majority of the Charter standards and outcomes and continue to do well in the areas tenants said matter most.

“Alongside our national analysis, our landlord reports and comparison tool go live today. These simple tools let tenants find out about and compare their own landlord’s performance against the Charter.
