Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS)
The Welsh Housing Quality Standard requires all social landlords to improve their housing stock to an acceptable level by 2020.
We believe that everyone in Wales should have the opportunity to live in a good quality home within a safe and secure community. To help achieve this aim we published the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS).
The quality of existing homes, particularly for those who are poor or vulnerable, is crucial. This investment in people's homes is also an investment in local jobs, skills and communities at a time when tackling poverty and creating jobs is top of the Welsh Government’s agenda.
For these reasons it is essential for all social landlords to meet and maintain the Welsh Housing Quality Standard as soon as possible, but in any event no later than 2020.
The Standard will ensure that dwellings are of good quality and suitable for the needs of existing and future residents.
