All London councils have now agreed to participate in our Rogue Landlord and Agent Checker. It currently publicly displays information about private landlords and letting agents who have been prosecuted or fined by the London Boroughs of Brent, Camden, Greenwich, Islington, Kingston, Newham, Redbridge, Southwark, Sutton, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Westminster.
The Mayor is working closely with all other London councils to add their enforcement records on to the Checker as soon as possible. Some boroughs have uploaded records which cannot be viewed publicly, but which are available to other London councils to help with their enforcement activities. Our Policies and Procedures document provides more information on this.
It also includes information about landlord and agent offences submitted by the London Fire Brigade and the two letting agent consumer redress schemes - The Property Redress Scheme and The Property Ombudsman.
Things you need to know when using this Checker
- Records will only stay on the system for a limited time. Please read our Policies and Procedures for more information
- Only landlords and agents who've been fined or convicted of a relevant housing offence will appear
- If a landlord or agent looks like they've received a £0 fine, it may be because they were convicted of multiple offences at once and the Judge issued a combined fine. The fine will therefore display against the first conviction only
