Councils have enough powers.before article 4 came into effect.They are trying to do the job on cheap. Government and councils do not want to spend money and invest in this sector. It is easy for the To project landlords as money grabbing rouges. Then bring laws and penalties to follow gaps in their finances. They need to move away from set up. The simple way forward would be for landlords to sign a declaration of minimum standards or for landlords to have a licence every 3 years. This can be carried by council trained inspectors or body. Like gas or electrical tes Any issues then can me ministered by the councils and work with the landlords to improve the housing stock. Most landlords are law abiding and run as a business. And willing to invest. They are not going to invest if on the other hand tenant come and destroy the property. Or do not pay rent. you need to have fair and balanced laws . Fining landlords and encouraging tenants no to keep. Their side of agreement is a recipie for disaster. And most of the money for fines takes money out of improving properties to enforcement with no real benefit to sector . It only address the short term issues and seen to be money making exercise and creates a mistrust and division for all. It may suit short term policies to raise revenues and primary design for central government to invest or cut cost but looks good for political their vote. They project a climate where the are seen to be addressing the issues with out having any real difference on the ground. Councils need to work with landlords and government needs to proper funds and councils to invest in their teams to do a decent job using existing powers and scrap or review recent licensing laws. Councils have enough powers via HHRS. LACORS And other legislation to prosecute rough land loaded and new legislation noir to be brought in for tenants. If the proper checks are carried before the tenancy and tenants damages or misuse the property then they should be made accountable for it and make a criminal offence for serious issues . Those who receive housing benefit should have sanctions if they misuse benefits should be made accountable. It takes lot of time and energy to do the job and will to do a proper job Easiest option is to divide society and misinform for their political ontrest
