Croydon selective landlord licensing

Sep 1 2014 to Mar 2 2015
Environment, Health and social care, Housing

The Housing Act 2004 has given councils the power to introduce the licensing of privately rented properties to improve conditions for tenants and the local community.


landlord.jpg

Under the proposed licensing scheme, all private landlords with properties let in the borough will require a licence for each of their rented properties. The council will need to determine that the proposed licence holder is a 'fit and proper' person to manage their properties. Landlords renting a property without a licence face fines of up to £20,000, while those that fail to comply with licence conditions can be prosecuted and fined up to £5,000.

Why are we proposing to introduce the selective licensing scheme?
Croydon has approximately 30,000 privately rented properties. The scheme will help drive up the quality of private rented properties in the borough. It will also help ensure the crime and anti-social behaviour that is sometimes associated with poorly managed private rented housing is dealt with effectively. The Housing Act 2004 gives councils the power to designate the whole of, or part of the borough for selective licensing provided that the following sets of conditions are met:
  • that the area is experiencing a significant and persistent problem caused by anti-social behaviour;
  • that some or all of the private sector landlords who have let premises in the area (whether under leases or licences) are failing to take action to combat the problem that it would be appropriate for them to take; and
  • that making a designation will, when combined with other measures taken in the area by the local housing authority, or by other persons together with the local housing authority, lead to a reduction in, or the elimination of the problem.

As detailed in the consultation document, the council considers that these conditions are met. Private renting has increased significantly in Croydon with one of the negative consequences being poor quality homes, noise, litter, fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour.
