Welcome to the Residential Property Tribunal Wales

The Residential Property Tribunal Wales is an independent tribunal that has been set up to resolve disputes relating to private rented and leasehold property.

Tribunal office arrangements

The tribunal continues to work remotely with limited access to items delivered by post. If possible, please ensure that any documents required by the tribunal (including application forms and written submissions) are sent by email to rpt@gov.wales
