Civil penalty for housing offence

Posted: 14/12/2018

We are committed to improving housing conditions across the city and will continue to take action against private landlords whose properties do not meet minimum standards. This week, under the Housing Act 2004, we issued a 10,000 civil penalty fine against a landlord who had failed to carry out repairs to their rented property.

We want everyone to have a safe and secure home, and this is just one of the ways in which we can try to achieve this. We also provide encouragement, support and incentives to landlords who sign up to our Landlord Accreditation Scheme North Staffordshire.
