Housing Possession Court Duty Scheme: Towards a more sustainable service

Page 1 of 11

Closes 3 Jan 2020


This consultation sets out a new model for the Scheme which the government believes will be financially viable and logistically deliverable for providers. We believe the proposals set out in this consultation will ensure the sustainability of this vital service for the clients who rely upon it.

The consultation is aimed at anyone with an interest in the provision of civil legal services in respect of housing matters within England and Wales, including, but not limited to, members of the legal profession and their professional representative bodies, members of the judiciary, and legal services regulators.

This consultation contains a series of questions which seek views on our proposals for reform. Alongside this consultation, we have published an Impact Assessment, which sets out the estimated impact the proposals would have if they were implemented. We also invite respondents to provide evidence that could help us consider the potential impact on individuals with protected characteristics, in line with our responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010.
