‘Landlords want to comply with the law and offer a good home to their tenants’

While some rogue landlords and bad players grab the headlines, the reality is that the vast majority of private sector landlords do a good job and look after their properties and tenants properly.

The latest English Housing Survey report on the private rented sector 2017/18 showed that 84% of tenants were satisfied or very satisfied with their current accommodation. 

“Most landlords want to comply with the law and offer a good home to their tenants, Cllr Linda Woodings, Nottingham City Council’s portfolio holder for planning, housing and heritage, said. 


Cllr Woodings was commenting after Nottingham City Council was last week awarded £100,000 by the government to help private landlords improve housing standards across the city.

The council is one of more than 100 local authorities across England awarded a share of over £4m. 

Councils will use the funding to crack down on criminal landlords and letting agents.

Woodings added: “Tenants need to know what to expect from their landlord and the best way to exercise their rights.”

    I hope that report gets out to the media and they publish it because it is time the public got the facts not just the headline grabbing 'bad landlord' stereotype, which actually doesn't exist.! Professional landlords are looking to keep (good) tenants long term and take care of our property assets, it's not in our interests to offer shoddy accommodation or rip off tenants.


    Exactly and why wouId we serve a S21 unless selling up.
