Overview

Speaker Update: Learn how to implement the Housing and Planning Act 2016 with the Department for Communities and Local Government. 

In April 2017 far reaching powers were introduced to help tackle rogue landlords. These powers include fining rogue landlords up to £30,000; extension of rent repayment orders, and introducing banning orders for the most serious and prolific offenders.

By understanding how to use these powers; local authorities can prosecute and reduce the number of rogue landlords in their area and help protect private tenants from exploitation.

On this highly interactive Effectively Identifying and Tackling Rogue Landlords training course, delegates will learn how to use the powers and gain the latest practical advice on reducing the number of rogue landlords.
