Our joint response to Awaab’s Law consultation

In January 2024, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) launched a consultation on Awaab’s Law. This consultation is one of a series of consultations the Government is running to implement the new regulatory framework set out in the Social Housing (Regulation) Act.

Eastlight Community Homes has led on compiling a collective response from our Build East members.

We’re expressing concern on all elements of the proposal, with the main points being:

  1. Not to include all Housing, Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) hazards under Awaab’s Law right now, just DMC as originally proposed.
  2. The timescales for response, beginning and completion of works, and report-writing
  3. The Government’s Impact Assessment calculations.
