The Community Housing Regulatory Authority is the regulatory body for the community housing sector (CHRA). CHRA was set up by Government to register and regulate community housing providers.
To know if a community housing provider is able to be registered as a class 1 social landlord, CHRA will look at organisations' performance and capability in the following areas:
- Financial viability and sustainability
- Tenancy management
- Asset management
Once a community housing provider is registered, CHRA will continue to work with the organisation to help them develop their strength and performance as a provider of community housing.
Only CHRA registered community housing providers are eligible to enter into a contract for the provision of IRRS tenancies.
