Tpas National Scrutiny Week 2023

1st Sep 2023

What is resident scrutiny?

Resident scrutiny gives residents an active stake in the running of their landlord’s business rather than just being recipients of services. It enables staff and residents to work in partnership to achieve better performance and improved outcomes.

What does resident scrutiny look like at Newlon?

We have a variety of approaches such as:

  • Mystery shopping – which is undertaken three times per year by 20+ residents.
  • Resident monitoring of strategy – which is undertaken twice per year as part of a three year strategy life cycle by representatives from a group of 18 residents.
  • Project based review – which is undertaken twice a year by representatives from a group of 15+ residents.
