Rent Assessment Committee

The Rent Tribunal deals with disputes about rent, service costs, costs for utilities of self-contained accommodation (houses, flats), shared accommodation, caravans and caravan sites. This relates to social housing (regulated tenancy agreement) of both housing associations and private landlords. The Rent Tribunal also deals with rent and service charges disputes in the case of  deregulated sector residences (liberalised tenancy agreement) if the tenant and the landlord have agreed to that (in their tenancy agreement or on a later date). More information about the tasks and working methods of the Rent Tribunal can be found on website of the Rent Tribunal.
