Detail of outcome
Following the consultation, the government has decided to proceed with the proposals as set out in the consultation; a summary of the responses and details of the reasons for that decision are set out in the consultation response.
The government received a total of 61 responses from:
- the judiciary
- legal practitioners and their representative groups
All of which were carefully considered before reaching a conclusion. A list of all the organisations who responded can be found at Annex A of the consultation response.
This is a consultation on a competitive tendering approach for the Housing Possession Court Duty Schemes.
This will consolidate the current number of schemes through joining courts, allowing for larger and more sustainable contracts for providers.
There will be quality standards that all providers must meet.
Providers will then bid for work at a price that reflects the costs of delivery and represents a fair market price for the work carried out.
Update: In light of the announcement that a General Election is to be held on 8 June it has been necessary to revise our planned publication date for the consultation results. Further information on timescales will be provided when available.
