Legislation will come into force in April 2018
enabling local authorities to pursue banning orders for a number of
specified offences under the Housing Act 2004. Also coming into
force at this time are powers and duties on local authorities to
include persons on a nationally held database of rogue landlords
and property agents. This report seeks approval to use banning
orders and make entries onto the database as laid out in the
Housing and Planning Act 2016 as a tool to assist the Council in
improving standards within the private rented sector.
