Councils should enforce fines to agents and landlords that don’t comply

York Council is seeking the introduction of fixed penalty notices to letting agents and landlords who are found

to be deliberately disobeying the law. The council want the authority to fine any agent that does not belong to

one of the three government-approved redress schemes or does not reveal details of its fees in line with the

legislation introduced back in May.

They also says that any landlord who has not installed smoke detectors on every floor of every rented property

and or not fitted carbon monoxide alarms in each room where there is a solid fuel-burning appliance will also

be in breach.

The recommendation is for a maximum £5,000 penalty for each instance of non-compliance. TheHousing

Services Manager will hold the power to enforce the fines and will be given discretion to decrease it in

extenuating circumstances.

Executive Member for Housing and Safer Neighbourhoods, Councillor David Carr says “While we acknowledge

that the majority of York’s letting agents serve landlords and tenants well, we want to support and recognise

good practice while penalising those who fall below required standards. The city’s private rented sector has

grown significantly and accommodates some of our most vulnerable households and we want to ensure they

get a fair deal,”

The new rules will be finalised on August 25.
