Chronic failure to tackle criminal landlords puts tenants at risk

I note that NRLA say that more funding is required to help Local Authorities clamp down on these rogue landlords. I wonder how many of these rogue landlords are housing associations?

I seem to recall that when Section 24 was first announced any Landlords many private Landlords suggested that this would force up their costs which would mean that they had no alternatives but to pass these increased on to their tenants. When Councils started to charge private Landlords a license fee, some of the conditions to get this such as PAT testing also further increased landlords cost base, the same point was made.

Unfortunately, its all to easy to ignore comments like these and then just blame Landlords for putting up their prices.... Read More
