The First-tier Tribunal for Scotland (Housing and Property Chamber) was formed to deal with determinations of rent or repair issues in private sector housing as well as assistance in exercising a landlord’s right of entry. The Chamber also provides relatively informal and flexible proceedings to help resolve issues that arise between homeowners and property factors. These were the functions of the former Tribunals that the Chamber replaced: The Private Rented Housing Panel (PRHP) and Homeowner Housing Panel (HOHP). The Chamber will also start to hear more private rented sector cases from December 2017 including the new letting agents’ regime; transfer of jurisdiction from the sheriff courts; and new private tenancies.
