Tough stance on rogue landlords in Horsham
5:30pm Friday 12th July 2013 in News
Horsham District Council is supporting homeless charity Shelter’s campaign to take a tough stance against rogue landlords.
It will help crack down on landlords who are ignoring their responsibilities and causing misery to local families.
Complaints from tenants will be investigated to establish if properties are unhealthy or unsafe.
Landlords will be required to take action with enforcement action taken as a last resort.
Councillor Sue Rogers said: “While we have many good landlords in our area, we also know that there is a small but dangerous minority of landlords who trap people in homes which cause misery and, in some cases, put lives at risk.
“We must stamp out rogue landlords in the Horsham district, and by joining Shelter’s Evict Rogue Landlords Campaign, we are committing to take tough action against the worst offenders.”
