Right of Appeal

A landlord can appeal to the First-Tier Tribunal within 28 days from the day the Remedial Notice is served. The Tribunal may allow an appeal to be made after this date if it is satisfied that there are good reasons for the failure to appeal on time.

The Tribunal may confirm, quash or vary notices served by the Council.

Landlords can appeal on the grounds that all reasonable steps had been taken to comply or reasonable progress had been made towards compliance with the notice when the Council gave notice of their intention to enter and take the remedial action.
