The South West's Biggest Landlord Expo Tuesday 17 May 2022
If you are planning on placing just one bet on sport today you ought to make it the best bet possible.
The Residential Landlords Association (RLA) has once again called for the introduction of a properly funded housing court to cope with proposed regulatory changes and speed up repossession cases.
The Ministry of Justice says it takes private landlords an average of 22.6 weeks from making a repossession claim to the courts to it actually happening. This is up from 22.5 weeks in the second quarter of the year - the third consecutive quarterly increase.
With the next government expected to end the use of Section 21 repossessions in the private rented sector the number of repossession cases going through the courts is expected to increase dramatically, but the latest data from the Ministry of Justice demonstrates that the existing system is inadequate, according to the RLA.
The landlord association believes that a new housing court would help speed up and improve justice for landlords and tenants.
