The Government has Announced some New Proposals for a New Housing Court

The government has launched some kind of consultation and it looks like they are going to try and reform their routes to justice. The most radical option would be for them to set up a new housing court. The evidence has shown that landlords are very fearful of longer tenancies because of the time and even the cost as well. There has been an argument at the ARLA PropertyMark and the consultation shows that there are barriers to overcome. This is especially interesting if you work in lettings recruitment or if you are looking for estate agent jobs.

The latest government data shows that the average time that it takes to progress a landlord possession from a claim is around 16 weeks. The MHCLG have also added that they understand the fact that it can take longer than average and that they also need to try and seek enforcement through courts as well. The consultation invites views from landlords and tenants as well. They also have to try and aim to help the government understand the process better as well.

They want to try and help the government so that they can better understand the process and they also want to try and improve the experience of people using the court and even the tribunal service. This is going to be done in most cases and they are also going to try and make the case for specialist housing as well. This would be done in an attempt to try and reduce delays and to even try and simplify the whole process too. This was called for back in 2016 and they also have various constitution responses as well. This is going to try and speed up the system and it is also going to hopefully give people the chance to really get a much better service from the government in general as well.
