Regulation of Registered Social Landlords (Wales) Act 2018

Powers exercisable in respect of officers and management of registered social landlord

Section 9 –Amalgamation effected by Welsh Ministers

54.Section 9 amends one of the thresholds at which the Welsh Ministers can amalgamate RSLs which are registered societies under paragraph 15H of Schedule 1. This paragraph applies to RSLs which are registered societies. One of the thresholds had been that the Welsh Ministers were satisfied that there had been misconduct or mismanagement in the RSL’s affairs, it is now that they are satisfied that the RSL has failed to comply with a requirement imposed by or under an enactment. The other threshold remains unchanged.

55.As a result, the position is as follows:

  • If, as a result of an inquiry or an audit (under paragraph 20 or 22 of Schedule 1), the Welsh Ministers are satisfied that an RSL which is a registered society has failed to comply with a requirement imposed by or under an enactment, the Welsh Ministers may make and execute on behalf of the society an instrument providing for its amalgamation with another registered society.

  • This paragraph does not apply if the failure relates only to the RSL’s provision of housing in England.
