Those that have an interest in Housing Law and its development may be interested to read the Justice working party report which has just been published. The report looks to propose what is known as a "Housing Dispute Service".

The working party which worked on the report have looked at the way in which the current system works, the problems that the current system faces and the way the current system could be improved for those involved in this area.

The report itself is made up of two parts. The first part of the report considers the proposal of a specialist Housing Dispute Service and how that would operate and the second part of the report looks at what is seen as essential reforms to the current system that we have in place.

It is suggested within the report that the new "Housing Dispute Service would not be a Court, Tribunal or Ombudsman. It would be something entirely new".

As with any report there is likely to be a number of questions and concerns.

The full report can be accessed via the Justice website.
