Housing (Scotland) Act 2010

Connected bodies

198.Section 164 defines what is meant by a body that is connected to a registered social landlord or a local authority landlord. A body is considered to be connected if the RSL or local authority landlord is able to direct the body in accordance with its wishes and if the connected body can direct the RSL or local authority landlord in accordance with its wishes. A body that is a subsidiary of a social landlord (including a registered social landlord or local authority landlord), a body which has a social landlord as a subsidiary, and a body which is the subsidiary of a body of which the social landlord is a subsidiary, is also a connected body. “Subsidiary” has the same meaning in section 164 of the Act as in the Companies Act 2006 (c.46) or, as the case may be, the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies and Credit Unions Act 1968 (c.55).
