Housing and Regeneration Act 2008

Section 120 - Notice

276.This section requires the regulator to take certain actions as soon as reasonably possible after it has registered or deregistered a body. These actions are to notify other registrars who have related duties or powers depending on the constitutional form of the body that the regulator has registered or de-registered. Therefore, the regulator notifies:

  • the Charity Commission, if the registered provider is a registered charity,

  • the Financial Services Authority, if the registered provider is an industrial and provident society,

  • the registrar of companies for England and Wales, if the registered provider is a registered company.

277.Subsection (2) provides that in notifying these bodies, the regulator will advise whether the body has been registered with a profit-making or non-profit designation under section 115(1).

278.Subsection (3) provides that if the regulator changes the designation under section 115(9), the regulator will also advise the relevant bodies.

279.Subsection (4) provides that a person to whom notice is given by the regulator under this section must keep a record of that notice.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
