NALS responds to rogue landlords inquiry

13th October 2017

The Communities and Local Government Select Committee has launched an inquiry into whether current powers held by local authorities allow them to adequately crack down on rogue landlords.

Isobel Thomson, chief executive, NALS said:

“We welcome this announcement from the Select Committee. NALS has called for greater enforcement across the PRS for some time and launched an Enforcement Toolkit last year specifically to support local authorities.

For too long rogue operators have slipped under the enforcement radar, so focussing on measures to address this situation is a positive move by Government. Coupled with the promise of increased regulation and the introduction of mandatory CMP, we can see that steps are starting to be put in place to create a very different PRS in the future; one that is fairer for all.”
