A Summary of the Housing Act 2004 Part 1 Appeal Decisions by the Residential Property Tribunal Service for England


These pages have been produced in an attempt to provide a short summary of key relevant points from decisions made by the Residential Property Tribunal Service (RPT) panels for England (Eastern, London, Midland, Northern and Southern) since 2006. It looks solely at decisions concerning Improvement Notices, Prohibition Orders and Emergency Action (Emergency Remedial Action and Emergency Prohibition Orders) under Part 1 of the Housing Act 2004 rather than at the specific issues of Clearance, Demolition, HMO licensing, HMO Management Orders and Empty Dwelling Management Orders.

The review of case decisions has been carried out by the members of the West of England Local Authorities HHSRS Group and reflects the views of those persons only. None of the content should be regarded as a legal interpretation of the law.

For the full decision and details on all of the cases covered, it is recommended that the reader goes to the RPT website, searching by panel, type of action and year. Within these pages, information is presented on the basis of action type, RPT panel and year in the following RPT panel order: Eastern, London, Midland, Northern and Southern.

The intention is that these pages will be regularly up-dated (around every 6 months).

To search the pages use CTRL+F and enter your search term, for example, "westminster" or "Improvement Notice" you can then click "find next" to see the results in the text.
