Ok, this really is a short note. The Residential Property Tribunal Service (those nice people who run LVTs, RACs and RPTs) have announced that, from July 1, 2011, they will be administered by HM Court and Tribunal Service and that, from Spring 2012, they will become the Property, Land and Housing Chamber of the Tribunal system (effectively, the First Tier Tribunal, with appeals to the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber)). This second change will have the effect of closing a very technical lacuna in the routes of appeal provisions in the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, which didn’t fit well with the Tribunals Courts and Enforcement Act 2007.

The announcement is here.

J is a barrister. He considers housing law to be the single greatest kind of law known to humankind and finds it very odd that so few people share this view.
