The Rent Assessment Panel is an independent body funded by the Department for Social Development. Rent assessment committees (usually made up of a chair and one member) are constituted from the Rent Assessment Panel. The function of a committee is, at the request of a landlord or tenant, to consider if the rent determined by the rent officer is an appropriate rent.
Where a landlord or tenant exercises their right to have the rent considered by a rent assessment committee, the rent officer refers the case to the Appeals Service who in turn assigns the case to a rent assessment committee.
