A New Housing Court
22 January 2019
CILEx submission to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government call for evidence on proposals to establish a new housing court.
CILEx finds that a new integrated Housing Court should help to make the current court system easier to navigate, faster and more cost efficient by integrating and streamlining processes within the County Court and First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber). However, the proposals shall fail unless Housing Courts are adequately resourced with specialist judges, court staff and court locations to ensure meaningful access to justice.
