The Housing and Planning Act 2016 introduces a power for the first-tier tribunal to serve a banning order on a landlord or property agent. The purpose of this consultation paper is to invite views and comments on which offences should constitute ‘banning order offences’ as defined by section 14 of the Act.
Through the Act, we have introduced a package of measures which will enable local authorities to effectively tackle these rogue or criminal landlords and property agents. The package comprises a national database of rogue landlords/property agents convicted of certain offences (or who have received multiple civil penalties as an alternative to prosecution in relation to certain offences).
We are also introducing civil penalties of up to £30,000 as an alternative to prosecution and extending Rent Repayment Orders to cover illegal eviction, breach of a banning order or failure to comply with certain statutory notices.
