Council housing complaints

If you are a Renfrewshire Council  tenant and you are unhappy about the services you receive or have issues about the way we are operate, you can use the Council's complaints procedure noted above, to report your concerns.

A significant performance failure is something that your landlord does, or fails to do, that puts the interests of its tenants at risk. This is something that does, or could, affect all of your landlord's tenants.

If your landlord does not deal with the failure using the complaints procedure noted above, you can contact the Scottish Housing Regulator. Their Significant Performance Failures page provides more information on what you should do and how to raise your concerns with them using the form provided by the Regulator.
