The list contains all hearings and case management discussions scheduled to take place in the coming month. This page will be updated weekly with the schedule up to a month ahead.
Observing/ Listening into a hearing or case management discussion
If you wish to attend in person as an observer, you are asked to contact the Housing and Property Chamber administration in advance of the hearing as space is limited. Places will be allocated on the day on a “first come” basis and places cannot be guaranteed. If the proceedings are being heard by teleconference, it is possible to listen to the proceedings and to do so you will need to contact the Chamber administration in advance and obtain an access code for the telephone conference call.
When attending or listening into a hearing and case management discussion, observers and those listening are asked to bear in mind the following points:
• Hearings and case management discussions can be subject to sudden cancellation or postponement. You are advised to confirm that it is still taking place by telephoning the administration on, or shortly before, the scheduled date.
• The Tribunal may exclude observers from the proceedings or part of the proceedings, either on their own initiative or on the application of any party, where the Tribunal decide that public proceedings would adversely affect the fairness of the proceedings.
• The Tribunal may consider any such application on the day of the hearing or case management discussion, although parties are encouraged to make any such application in advance. Guidance is available on the website.
• Where all or any part of a hearing or case management discussion is held in private, this will not be open to observers
• Whilst you will be able to attend a hearing or case management discussion, you should be aware that you will not be entitled to participate in the proceedings in any way. In addition you will not be provided with any papers or documentation in relation to the particular case.
