The Scottish Government’s consultation on Procedure of the First-tier Tribunal Housing and Property Chamber sought views on:
• A single set of operational rules to apply across all jurisdictions in the Housing and Property Chamber from December 2017, intended to streamline existing procedures and to provide consistency of approach.
• The provision of publicly-funded legal assistance in certain circumstances.
The consultation opened on 6 January and closed on 31 March 2017. 21 responses were received (20 from organisations and one from an individual member of the public).
