Consumer Trader and Tenancy Tribunal Rehearing

< Back to list

In some circumstances, an order may be changed or cancelled by a rehearing. You must apply within 14 days of the date yo received the notice of orders, or 14 days after receiving written reasons for a decision. You cannot apply for a rehearing after the Sheriff has evicted you. Fill in an ‘Application for a Rehearing’ form and return it with the fee to the CTTT registry.

The form asks you to prove that:

  • there is substantial injustice, and
  • the decision was not ‘fair and equitable’, or
  • the decision was against the weight of evidence, or
  • evidence is now available that was not available at the time of the hearing and that a rehearing would lead to a different result. Contact your local TAAS for help.
