The database of rogue landlords and property agents was introduced in April 2018. The database is targeted at only the most serious and prolific criminals, who are convicted of the limited range of banning order offences. The database is currently an enforcement tool available to local authorities, except in certain circumstances where anonymised, aggregated data can be requested by the public.
In October 2018 the Prime Minister committed to opening up access to information on the database of rogue landlords and property agents to tenants. This consultation is seeking views on widening access to the database to allow tenants and prospective tenants access to the database. To ensure that the database is a useful tool for local authorities and tenants, we are also seeking views on expanding the scope of offences and infractions which could lead to entries on the database.
Annex A contains the current list of offences and infractions which lead to inclusion on the database.
Annex B contains a list of proposed offences and infractions for inclusion on the database.
