Regulation of Registered Social Landlords (Wales) Act 2018

Paragraph 11 of Schedule 1

15.Paragraph 11 of Schedule 1 applies to an RSL which is registered as a company (including a company that is a registered charity). The registration of companies is recorded by the registrar of companies. A company must file Articles of Association with the Registrar of Companies. This is a document that contains the purpose of the company as well as the duties and responsibilities of its members. The company must also send a copy of any resolution which makes alterations to its articles to the registrar of companies.

16.Paragraph 11 of Schedule 1 is amended by section 3, removing 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 of those changes.

17.If an RSL which is registered as a company makes changes to its name, the address of its registered office or its articles of association, it does not need to obtain the Welsh Ministers’ consent but 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.
