  • Mission – 3 elements

  • To deliver our vision we shall work with landlords and tenants to resolve disputes that come to us [impartially] using processes that are [fair], [evidence-based], and [free of bias]and[prejudice].

  • [These principles of dispute resolution]are the basis of our work with landlords, MPs, councillors and Tenant Panels to resolve disputes that come to them – and with tenants so they understand these principles.

  • Together we shall achieve accessible dispute resolution that will be of benefit to both landlords and tenants and encourage landlords to use these outcomes to improve the services they provide.
