Report a Rogue Landlord

A campaign has been launched to tell people living in private rented accommodation in Telford and Wrekin of their rights if they feel their landlord is providing them with a substandard home.

Report a Rogue Landlord

A series of posters and advertisements will appear across the borough encouraging tenants to report a rogue landlord.

It’s part of the Council’s Better Homes For All package to improve standards of privately rented accommodation and living standards. The package includes a new Rogue Landlord Taskforce, additional officers for the Council’s Housing team who will work solely on privately rented housing standards across the borough. Their role would be to hold all landlords and letting agents to account and ensure they provide good conditions for tenants.

Cllr Richard Overton, Telford & Wrekin Council’s Cabinet Member for Enforcement said: “If you have a problem with your accommodation, you should first report it directly to your landlord. Reporting them to us should be a last resort and it’s then that our Rogue Landlord Taskforce or Environmental enforcement team will step in.

“Everyone deserves to live in a better home and this Council will do everything it can to improve private rented housing.

“That’s why it’s important that tenants find good landlords. As well as tackling the rogues, we promote and support the good ones with our Landlord Accreditation scheme. Members of this scheme agree to a code of conduct and I would recommend anyone who is looking to rent a home, to check out our list of accredited landlords here."
