Welsh Government Housing Regulation

We share information about social housing letting data with the Welsh Government Housing Regulation.  It is a regulatory requirement for all registered social landlords to provide this data as per The Regulatory Framework for Housing Associations Registered in Wales.  The Regulation Framework is a non-statutory Code of Guidance which we are obliged to follow.

The data sets we share includes information on lettings, type of tenancy, rents and charges, demographic information about tenants (including special category data and criminal convictions) and financial information.  The data set does not include names or addresses but does include the unique property reference and the full postcode.

The information is used for research and statistical purposes to allow the Welsh Government to exercise their role in providing adequate social housing.  The information cannot be used for any other purposes, such as making decisions in relation to specific residents.

We share information because it is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest and/or for reasons of substantial public interest.  Individuals are not able to opt out of this process.
