The Communities and Local Government Committee has this week launched an inquiry into whether councils have adequate powers to tackle ‘rogue landlords’.
The brief of the inquiry into the Private Rental Sector (PRS) is detailed the committee below:
Chair of the Communities and Local Government Committee, Clive Betts MP, said: “With a big rise in the number of people renting over the last decade, there are real concerns about the ability of local authorities to protect tenants by tackling bad landlords and practices.
“Our inquiry will examine how local authorities can carry out enforcement work to deal with rogue landlords as well as looking at approaches used by councils to provide private rented accommodation in their areas.”
