Home and Communities Agency Consultation on introducing fees for social housing regulation

Consultation on introducing fees for social housing regulation – Homes and Communities Agency

The regulator is proposing to introduce fees for regulating private registered providers of social housing in England from April 2017 in accordance with our statutory powers under the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008. This includes a one-off fixed fee for all successful applications for initial registration and ongoing annual fee to fund the majority of costs of social housing regulation with the remainder funded by government grant.

This consultation is an opportunity to influence how the regulator will introduce fees for registered providers. Alongside the publication of this consultation document, the regulator will engage in discussions with stakeholders, including through its sounding board and advisory panels comprising providers and sector advisors respectively.
