The Housing Act 1983 (the Act) provides for rental housing agencies to be registered as either housing providers or housing associations. Section 87 of the Act allows the Registrar to change the category of registration if the circumstances of the registered agency change.

The Housing Registrar developed guidance(pdf 250KB) to inform currently registered housing providers seeking to upgrade their registration status to housing association.
