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.

I thought about starting a website something like 'rate a landlord . com'

You get the idea, disgruntled tenants get to put their experience against a property. It could work from a post code / house name&number database.

What do you think? Obviously it would be better run in the private sector....
  • I don't believe that there can be sustainable asset inflation when there is underlying wage deflation.
  • No matter what you choose to do in life, choose to do what you are best at and be the best you can be.
  • Everyone is a vested interest and everything is rigged.
  • Sometimes bubble dynamics just end, people stop believing and what was once a virtuous cycle suddenly morphs into vicious one.
  • The real value goes beyond the money.

I have come to realize that there is widespread belief in a 2015 global recovery.At this point in June 2013 is clear that there will be no recovery in 2015, central bankers have run out of tools to patch over the structural problems and the can can no longer be kicked.As we approach 2015 it will be clear that the emperor has no clothes and there will be an economic crash that makes 2009 look trivial.Note: I was wrong on 2nd May 2012 12:00 - London Top called prediction of London will fall by >10% in 12 months.

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

Yes, I noticed twatadvisor.net was taken.
"the remarkable result is that under Mrs Thatcher from 1979-90, just as under Tony Blair from 1997-2007, the real value of Housing Equity Withdrawal is larger than the real value of GDP growth"

I'd consider ratemyneighbour even more useful.

A bad neighbour (especially a noisy one) can do much more than a landlord to make your life hell. And is usually harder to detect when you view a place.
