Back landlord licensing

Generation Rent is campaigning for a Landlord Licensing Scheme for the city of Liverpool.

At the moment many of Liverpool's 100,000 private sector tenants have decent landlords, but for a significant number, their landlords are keeping their homes in dilapidated conditions. This can affect people's health and some tenants are scared of complaining in case they get evicted.

We're supporting a landlord licensing scheme because it will raise standards of accommodation, particularly for vulnerable people, and it means that taxpayer money spent on Environment Health enforcement in housing will be more cost effectively targeted.

Please back our campaign here.

    For “many” substitute the words “the majority of” tenants having good landlords. A recent survey by the Council found that just 8% of tenants were unhappy with their landlords. This is a good figure when compared with other service suppliers. Of course, it would be good to score 100% but how do you justify a tenant tax being applied to all tenants in Liverpool to target that 8% who should be rooted out by enviromental health officers using all of the powers they have in the Housing Act 2004.
