Appealing an Entry on the Database of Rogue Landlords & Letting Agents

A landlord or agent has no right to appeal against an entry made on the database of rogue landlords and letting agents after a local authority has obtained a banning order against the landlord or letting agent.

A landlord or agent has a right to appeal against a local authority’s notice of its decision to make an entry on the database under its discretionary powers. The appeal must be made to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) before the end of the period in the local authority’s notice. You can also seek permission from a Tribunal to appeal out of time.

An out of time appeal can be considered if there is a good reason for the late appeal. An entry must not be made until the appeal is decided or withdrawn.[1]
