Regulation of Registered Social Landlords (Wales) Act 2018

Disposals of land


74.Prior to amendments being made by the Act, RSLs were required to obtain the consent of the Welsh Ministers for disposals of land under section 9 of the 1996 Act, section 171D of the Housing Act 1985, and sections 81 and 133 of the Housing Act 1988. Sections 13 and 14 of the Act remove those requirements and impose a duty to notify the Welsh Ministers.

75.Section 9 of the 1996 Act (as amended by section 14 of the Act) will apply to any disposal by an RSL, meaning the RSL must notify the Welsh Ministers of a disposal and comply with any notification directions given by them.
