Councils awarded cash to tackle rogue landlords

In an attempt to crack down on rogue landlords, councils have been provided with financial support from the government.

Leeds, Rochdale and Blackpool councils have all recently been given money to ensure that tenants are receiving high-quality living standards.

The local authority in Leeds was awarded £125,000 of government funding to tackle quality and safety issues above shops for more than 200 residences, according to LocalGov, after a bid by the local authority and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue service. The council has served over 1,000 enforcement notices on at least 350 properties to improve living conditions.
