Property licensing consultation

Property licensing helps define standards for tenants and landlords alike on the quality of the private rented sector.

Licensing helps us to tackle poor property conditions, deprivation, anti-social behaviour and poor management of properties by some landlords. Whether you are a private tenant, landlord, local resident or business, we want your views on property licensing, as the current scheme expires in 2023.

The property licensing consultation has now closed. Thank you to everyone who responded.

M.E.L Research are currently preparing the report.
