Question

I am encouraged to learn that your forthcoming database will include rogue letting agents as well as rogue landlords. My report, Letting them get away with it, published March 2017 revealed that there are huge variations in levels of letting agent enforcement between councils across London, which could have an impact on the effectiveness of your database. Will you contact local councils about this and help to address the differences in enforcement activity?

Earlier this year I established the London Borough Private Rented Sector Partnership - a group hosted by City Hall and made up of every borough in London. 

The Partnership met for the first time on April 25 and its aim is to improve coordination, joint working, and information sharing to drive forward improvements in private rented sector enforcement across the capital.
