Landlord Faces Rap Over Housing Laws

Recommended Posts

http://www.eveningnews24.co.uk/content/New...3A13%3A14%3A060

Bad landlords can now be brought to book thanks to new powers handed to the city council.

From last month any landlord of properties that are let to five or more people living on three

floors or more has had to prove he or she is a “fit and proper” person.

The house must be suitable for the number of people living in it or council chiefs can refuse

a licence preventing the landlord from renting out the property.

Thank god for that. I've got 7 poles squeezed into an attic studio flat, but since it is only one floor, I'll be fine!

Wonder who is a BTL slumlord on the council?

Nice photoshopping by the way.

Two tenants the Evening News spoke to appeared happy with the conditions. One Riverside Road tenant, known as Steve, said some rooms were a bit cramped, but apart from that, it was okay. And Lewis Aldous, 19, who lives in Aspland Road, said that, despite paying £810 a month rent, he was happy.

Isn't it funny how they needed new penalising laws to discover someone breaking OLD laws!

I bet he's not breaking the new laws though. Did we really need the new laws, or better enforcement of the old laws?
