There are currently 39 voluntary housing associations registered with the housing division of the Department for Social Development, Northern Ireland. In 2004 the housing division regulation and inspection team commenced performance audits in four of the registered housing associations and progressed a further seven performance audits which had been ongoing from the previous year.

Two registered housing associations recorded a deficit in their annual audited accounts for the year of account ending on 31 December 2003 or the first accounting period, ending after that date.
