Details

Many types of disposal of a dwelling by a registered provider that is not a local authority (”a private registered provider”) require the regulator’s consent under various legislation. If this consent is not obtained, the purported disposal may be void. This document is issued by the regulator to help private registered providers understand the regulator’s approach to coming to decisions about disposal of social housing dwellings and other land, whether under the General Consent 2015 or where applications for specific consent are made.

This guide does not apply to disposals by registered providers that are local authorities or by ALMOs, unless the ALMOs themselves are private registered providers.
