This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

15Removal of bodies from the register

(1)Where a body has been registered in the register of housing associations, that body shall not be removed from the register except by the Corporation in accordance with the provisions of this section.

(2)If it appears to the Corporation that any body which is registered—

(a)is no longer a housing association falling within paragraph (a) or paragraph (b) of section 13(1) above, or

(b)has ceased to exist or does not operate,

the Corporation shall, on giving not less than 14 days' notice to that body, remove it from the register; and in a case where paragraph (b) above applies, any such notice shall be deemed to be given to a body if it is served at the address last known to the Corporation to be the principal place of business of that body.

(3)A body which is aggrieved by a decision of the Corporation to remove it from the register of housing associations may appeal against the decision to the High Court or, as the case may be, the Court of Session.

(4)If an appeal is brought under subsection (3) above and is not withdrawn the Corporation shall not remove the body concerned from the register of housing associations until the appeal has been finally determined.

(5)No sum shall be paid in respect of a grant under section 29, section 32 or section 33 of this Act to a body which has been removed under this section from the register of housing associations.

(6)Where, at the time of its removal under this section from the register of housing associations, a body owns any land, section 2 of this Act shall continue to apply to that land after the removal as if the body concerned continued to be a registered housing association.
