TIAA was originally formed by a consortium of housing associations to meet the specialist internal audit needs of the social housing sector. Over twenty years later, we are now one of the largest business assurance providers to this sector.

Specialists in the Housing Sector

We have encountered and worked with the issues and risks faced by housing associations and registered social landlords as the sector has grown. As the sector has developed so has TIAA expanded and developed. We have seen new governance, legislation, regulatory bodies and wider partnerships be drafted and implemented and we now work with over 100 housing associations across the UK.
