Housing Minister announces £2 million for councils to crackdown on rogue landlords
Reacting to recent reports that councils aren’t taking enough enforcement action against ‘rogue’ landlords, an announcement has been made about further funding.
Councils will be able to bid for funding to step up enforcement action against irresponsible landlords who make tenants’ lives a misery and to develop and test innovative ways to clamp down on squalid accommodation.
This is part of the government action to drive up standards in the private rented sector, saying that it is “ensuring millions of hard-working tenants get the homes they deserve and creating a housing market that works for everyone.”
Housing Minister, Heather Wheeler, MP said, “Everyone deserves to live in a home that is safe and secure, and it is vital we crack down on the small minority of landlords who are not giving their tenants this security.”
