New London database names and shames rogue landlords and letting agents
London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has declared that rogue landlords and letting agents now have nowhere to hide after launching a new database.
The Rogue Landlord and Agent Checker is the first of its kind in the UK and lists landlords and letting agent who have been successfully prosecuted or have face civil enforcement action for housing offences.
The Mayor believes that the new tool, which is published on the City Hall website, will provide the city’s inhabitants greater confidence whilst searching for private rented accommodation, by allowing them to check a prospective landlord or letting agent and, at the same time, act as a clear deterrent to the minority of landlords and letting agents who behave dishonestly.
