Moving places

I was reading the report from the Senior President of Tribunals (here) and came across some interesting little bits:

(a) The President of the Lands Chamber in his report notes that he now has a power to make a protective costs order in cases where there is a significant disparity in resources between parties – does anyone know where this power comes from? I confess that I’d not heard of it.

(b) The Lands Chamber is moving buildings in 2014 as well – it’ll have a permanent home in the Royal Courts of Justice.

(c) The President of the FTT(PC) notes that her Tribunal received 10,311 “residential property” cases in 2012/13, and dealt with 10,047 cases. Whilst that will include all leasehold disputes, enfranchisement and rent cases, it is a quite incredible number. I had no idea they were so busy.

Anyway, the report is available to download and is worth a read.

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.
