🤡😣🙂 The survey results include tenants’ views on their relationship with their Pub Company, as well as their awareness and experience of the Pubs Code and the Pubs Code Adjudicator and its communications.
🤡😣🙂 This statutory advice is to assist the industry on the application of the Pubs Code Fees Regulations to arbitration disputes about the determination by an Independent Assessor of the “Market Rent” payable for a Market Rent Only tenancy.
🤡😣🙂 The Pubs Code Adjudicator is responsible for enforcing the statutory Pubs Code. The Pubs Code regulates the relationship between all pub companies owning 500 or more tied pubs in England and Wales and their tied tenants.
🤡😣🙂 Pubs Code arbitrations are managed by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) on behalf of the PCA. If you are making a referral from 13 December 2021 you will need to complete the new referral form and send this to the CIArb Dispute Appointment Service (DAS) team. The form can be emailed to [email protected]. Full details, including how to pay the referral fee, can be found on their website.
There is a difference between a general enquiry and a formal referral to the PCA for arbitration. You can only make a referral if you are a tied tenant (or a pub owning business in relation to market rent only disputes), or authorised to act on their behalf.
