Cape Town - Established during 2001, the Rental Housing Tribunal (RHT) assists in resolving disputes that arise between landlords and tenants.
It is made up of members with housing management, development and rental housing experience, who have been appointed by the Provincial Minister of Housing. The RHT is also tasked with implementing the Rental Housing Act.

“The primary function of the tribunal is to mediate and settle disputes that tenants and landlords cannot resolve themselves in an amicable manner. Ideally, the RHT’s aim is to ensure that there is stability and harmony in the rental housing sector of the market,” explains Adrian Goslett, regional director and CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa.

“The RHT will inform landlords and tenants of both their rights and obligations with regard to the Rental Housing Act, and will then investigate and mediate the situation at hand to reach a resolution by making recommendations to the relevant parties.”
