Some time ago I did a post about the withdrawal of up to date information and guidance from the CLG website.
I now find that they have messed around with the Court Service website. I know it is as a result of administrative changes but it is really annoying.
The Court Service website was very useful. It had County Court addresses and contact details, court forms and a useful search index which was how I found a helpful notice on tenancy deposit claims (which I discuss here).
Now everything is moved over to the Direct.gov site and the Justice site. So I no longer know where anything is any more.
The court forms are now on the Justice site here.
However I have not been able to find the court details and addresses. I can find individual court details by doing a search on the court name in Google, but the court finder service was very useful to me. If you know where it has gone please leave a message.
Likewise the helpful notice about tenancy deposit claims seems to have disappeared without trace.
However, strangely the enormously helpful and informative Residential Property Tribunal service website is still there. PLEASE don’t move it!
I do wish that government would stop messing around with public service websites. It causes huge inconvenience all round as none of our links work any more. I can remember the same sort of frustration years back when then got rid of the ODPM website.
A message to government. Can you leave the sites alone now. Please?
