Regulation of Registered Social Landlords (Wales) Act 2018

Paragraph 9 of Schedule 1

12.Paragraph 9 of Schedule 1 applies to an RSL which is a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. Registered societies are registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

13.Paragraph 9 of Schedule 1 is amended to remove the requirement for an RSL to obtain the consent of the Welsh Ministers to certain rule changes, and instead impose a duty on an RSL to notify the Welsh Ministers.

14.If an RSL makes a change to any of its rules, including its name and the address of its registered office, it does not need to obtain the Welsh Ministers’ consent. It must notify the Welsh Ministers and comply with any notification directions given by them. For more information on notification directions see paragraph 13A of Schedule 1, inserted by section 5 of the Act.
