Hi Property118 readers, I am writing to request if you could share my petition  – on change.org >> Click Here

I know many landlords registered may agree with me.

National Tenants Database to tackle rogue tenants costing landlords thousands of pounds

“Campaign to start to protect landlords, utility suppliers, local councils from the rogue fraudster, criminal tenants and also their supporters’ friends and families who provide fraudulent, misleading documents to gain access to rental properties.

“I and so many other landlords have been the victims of professional fraudster tenants who provided false references and the referencing companies have failed to recognise the false information and are then not willing cooperate and not willing to admit their mistakes.”

Enthusiastically signed this.
But the real problem is that if these tenants are not our problem will become the governments problem, so they will probably not want to know!

At least all property 118 members can signed this to show support, the numbers can be reached to many thousands.
why no one response?

I'm sorry to sound negative about this petition as I'm sympathetic to the call for a database of rouge tenants (providing the GDPR issues can be navigated) but it would be easier to sign if the case made wasn't such a personal rant. I suspect that a briefer, more reasoned case would attract more support.

Surely this should be part of the duties for the councils that have enforced licencing schemes?
I'm in Durham, and have now payed to obtain a draft licence. I cannot see where my £500/property will be usefully expended, nor can I see how or whom will police the councils to fulfill their obligations of these schemes.

Such databases should be set up.
