Housing and Regeneration Act 2008

2008 CHAPTER 17

Structure of the Act

Part 2 – Regulation of Social Housing

Chapter 1 - Introduction
Section 67 – Transitional arrangements

125.This section permits the Secretary of State by order to transfer functions of the Housing Corporation to the regulator, the HCA, or both jointly or concurrently. This order may make provision in relation to English but not Welsh registered social landlords which is similar to any provision made by Part 2 of the Bill. This power would allow the regulator to maintain the current system through transitional arrangements for the period after its establishment but before the new regulatory system is fully in force; for example, before it had consulted on standards.
