SHAC@OHG was formed to campaign for a better deal for tenants and residents of this giant landlord. The primary improvements needed relate to repairs and maintenance, genuine tenant and resident engagement, fair rents and service charges, fire safety including addressing the cladding scandal, and the right to transfer.
Merger with Riverside
OHG is due to become a subsidiary of Riverside Housing Group based in the North West.
We understand that there will be no ballot on the forthcoming OHG / Riverside merger, so residents will not be given a choice over whether the merger should take place.
MP Apsana Begum has written on behalf of OHG tenants, residents and workers demanding that OHG commits to holding a binding ballot. The letters were sent to OHG Chief Executive Richard Hill and Housing Minister Michael Gove.
SHAC is also filling the gap by balloting tenants and residents on a range of options for the future of their homes. You can complete the ballot here.
