There are problems in many areas where a small minority of rogue landlords neglect their management responsibilities. A number of well-intentioned landlords are not aware of their responsibilities and in some cases absentee landlords may not be aware of problems their tenants are causing. Arrangements must be in place for dealing with general tenancy issues and anti- social behaviour at the property.
Properties must also be suitable for the number of occupants and meet all the relevant health and safety regulations. The council continuously work with and exchange information with other enforcement and regulatory authorities in order to administer and enforce licensing.
If you have a complaint regarding a licensed property where you believe this may be wrongly licensed or have concerns over landlord management resulting in a possible breach in the licence conditions in place you can tell us using our online form.
