A council is considering naming and shaming private landlords who have been issued with enforcement notices to improve their properties.

East Staffordshire Borough Council says it has 250 complaints a year and is considering the plans in a bid to improve the quality of the private rented sector. It is also considering asking tenants to self-assess their properti

Would be interesting to do a FOI on how many complaints about landlords council recieve each year. Suspect many are ill set up for dealing with them.

What do you think? Obviously it would be better run in the private sector....

Just done a search, seems that the market for this type of site is already saturated. Oh well..
