Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS)
An annual report that covers compliance with the WHQS by all social landlords by component type.
- The number of social housing dwellings that are compliant with the WHQS (including acceptable fails) continues to increase. At 31 March 2014, 67 per cent of social housing dwellings (149,755 dwellings) were compliant with the WHQS (including acceptable fails) compared to 60 per cent a year earlier.
- Levels of WHQS compliance continue to be higher for registered social landlords (RSLs), with 83 per cent of RSL dwellings achieving WHQS compliance (including acceptable fails) at 31 March 2014 compared to 44 per cent of local authority dwellings.
- The components that continued to show the highest level of WHQS compliance for all social landlords were ‘Windows‘ and ‘Mains powered smoke detectors’, whilst ‘Bathrooms’ and ‘Kitchens’ had the lowest compliance at 31 March 2014.
