Residential Property Tribunal Service London

Residential Property Tribunal Service (RPTS) provides dispute settlement service to private rental or leasehold properties in London. However, RPTS cannot get involved with commercial property dispute resolution. All the committees or tribunals working under the Residential Property Tribunal Service are considered to be judicial bodies. A special legislation empowers Residential Property Tribunal Service with the right to give verdicts and resolve private rental property issues. The solution provided by the RPTS is less costly. Every panel or committee of the tribunal is composed of a President along with one or two Vice-presidents who then designate members to each case.
