RTB and Determination Order

    We recently had an adjudication hearing with the RTB and received a letter in the post determining the outcome of that hearing. It said a determination order would be issued but it has been about 9 weeks now and we haven't received anything. The RTB just keep saying it will issue soon but I'm wondering how long is soon? Does anyone have any experience of this.

    I think it was 4-5 months between decision being made for a case I brought and actually getting the order in the post. Its still not on the website either. I don't think you need the actual document though - once the decision is made its enforceable isn't it?

    Not according to the RTB. I need the actual Determination order to make it enforceable.

    I hate to tell you but the determination order isn't worth the paper its written on if the other party chooses not to adhere to it.

    Speaking as an ex accidental landlord who got out as soon as i was out of negative equity after being screwed by tenants withholding rent and then being told by the RTB "if they choose not to pay there's not a lot more we can do"

    RTB is the best example of a toothless quango.

    Good luck.
