2. Get permission
You need to get permission before you appeal to the tribunal if you’re appealing a decision made by the:
- First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber)
- Residential Property Tribunal in Wales
- Leasehold Valuation Tribunal in Wales
You don’t need to get permission to apply to the tribunal.
How to get permission
Ask the tribunal that originally made the decision for permission to appeal. Follow the steps on your decision letter.
The original tribunal must get your request for permission within 28 days of your decision letter. Speak to the original tribunal for details.
If you’re refused permission
You can ask the Lands Chamber for permission directly if you’re refused it from the original tribunal. Follow the steps on your decision letter.
You must do this within 14 days of being refused permission. This costs £220. You may be able to get help paying the fee if you’re getting certain benefits or on a low income.
You can apply for judicial review if you don’t get permission from the Lands Chamber. Speak to a solicitor to get help with the application.
