The new law for landlords has been enforced from 6th April 2017, allowing councils to impose fines of up to £30,000 as an alternative to prosecution. However, how many of those cases have been found?
Are the people found living in such houses evicted? what’s their future? did the council give them alternative accommodations or they became homeless? Moreover, what about the landlords who paid those fines? How has that money been spent by the councils? The law declares such income has to be used for “private sector housing enforcement purposes”.
I’m a third-year journalism student, currently working as a freelancer and researching on the topic. Any feedback, opinion, personal story, would be appreciated and fairly reported. I would like to have opinions and feedback on the issue by landlords and landlords associations as I believe too often mainstream media do not report their point of view and portray them as “rogue landlords”.
