Renting a Home

We can hear cases between tenants and landlords, caravan park owners and residents, and between rooming house owners and rooming house residents. We can also hear cases between the Director of Housing and tenants, and under the Disability Act 2006.

We cannot hear disputes between tenants, or co-tenants, disputes between residents, disputes with neighbours or disputes about internal Director of Housing policy.

Generally the hearings for these are short. Residential Tenancies cases usually only have one hearing.
