The Housing (Regulation of Approved Housing Bodies) Act 2019 provides for the regulator to establish and maintain a Register and to register persons as AHBs.
The Housing (Regulation of Approved Housing Bodies) Act 2019 specifies the type of information that the AHBRA must enter in the Register.
All organisations that currently have Approved Housing Body status and are listed on the Department’s register will be ‘deemed’ registered.
An organisation wishing to become an Approved Housing Body must meet the Eligibility Criteria and make an Application to Register.
The powers and functions of the AHBRA will be commenced on a phased basis and it is anticipated that all aspects relating to Eligibility Criteria and Application to Register will be commenced early 2022.
