What is the Rental Housing Tribunal?

The RHT is an independent body appointed by the MEC in terms of the Rental Housing Act to resolve disputes between landlords and tenants in residential dwellings. It is an alternative to costly court action. The Tribunal has the powers to summon a landlord or tenant to a mediation or Tribunal hearing. It can order a landlord or tenant to comply with any part of the Rental Housing Act and its procedural regulations. The ruling of the Tribunal has the same power as the judgement of a Magistrate's Court.​
