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.

Consultation on licensing closed

Thanks to everyone who signed our petition to the council. The consultation has now closed and we now wait and see what action Liverpool’s councillors will take.

We will keep you updated with any developments. 

In the meantime, please keep sharing your stories of renting in Liverpool with us here.
