This guidance sets out advice for local authorities on tackling rogue landlords.

Rogue landlords target vulnerable tenants placing them in unsafe or overcrowded accommodation. Some have even been placing tenants in converted outbuildings or vacant commercial premises. This behaviour can have a huge impact on neighbourhoods increasing refuse, noise and in some cases antisocial behaviour. It also places pressure on local services.

This guidance urges local authorities to crack down on rogue landlords and provides them with practical advice for doing so.
