What happens if the occupier disagrees with the pitch fee?

If the matter cannot be satisfactorily resolved with the site owner, it will be possible to appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) or the Residential Property Tribunal in Wales (“Tribunal”). If the pitch fee review form was served at least 28 days before the review date, an application may be made at any time after the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the review date but no later than three months after the review date.

If there is a late review, an application to the tribunal can be made at any time after the end of the period of 56 days beginning with the date the site owner serve the notice but no later than four months after the date of service of the notice.

For example:

  • If the review is undertaken on the review date of 1st April, then the application to the tribunal must be served after 29th April (28 days) but before 1st July (three months after the review).
  • If the review is undertaken late, for example on 1st July, then the application must be submitted no earlier than 27th August (56 days) but no later than 1st November (four months after the late review notice is served).
