Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I have just read that Croydon Council ( who I believe are Labour) have become the first council to support the scrapping of the Section 21 no fault eviction.
A council member stated “With Croydon having lost around 70% of its budget since 2010, we are struggling to deal with the scale of this problem, and it is unacceptable that private landlords are able to evict vulnerable tenants so easily, leaving the public sector to pick up the bill.”
I appreciate that this alters nothing, but I can see this snowballing, they probably fail to realise that the landlord licensing and S24 kicking in, is enough for some landlords to be leaving, hence the S21’s.
So I imagine if this every happens, we will see a sharp rise of S8’s?
