New powers to tackle rogue landlords and improving our Housing Standards Service
Most landlords in west Suffolk provide good standard accommodation, but occasionally we need to take action against unscrupulous operators and the Housing and Planning Act 2016 gives us new powers. We are consulting with landlords and residents on levels of fine. Find out more and complete our civil sanctions survey.
We would also like to ask some wider questions about how we can improve our services in respect of the private rented sector. Take part by completing the Improving West Suffolk Housing Standards Service survey.
