    Backlogs for Tribunals are huge across most of the country. Some people are wait a year from the time the Tribunal accept the appeal. You can ring HMCTS to ask how long the wait is in your are but do be aware that this will just be a guide.

    Welcome to the community @babyjack1.
    As Poppy stated, the backlogs are substantial and you could be waiting a long time.
    Please let us know how it goes and when you receive your date and the best of luck at the tribunal when it comes around.
