Combating Rogue Landlords: Ensuring Safer and Securer Homes

We sponsored a very engaging event recently on combating rogue landlords. Whilst we were there, we got to meet some interesting people and listen to some very passionate speakers and delegates regarding what can be done to really improve people’s lives.

Stuart Gilbert, Business Development Manager at Pentagull said: “One of the main things I took away from the day was the genuine concern that people demonstrated, be it from the delegates who were attending who cared about their customers or from the policy makers who obviously really do give a damn about making a positive change for everyone who lives in rented accommodation. The speakers spoke passionately about improving peoples lives through making sure they had safe and healthy places to live.”

There were thought-provoking discussions on what rogue landlords were and how and what should be done to tackle them, be it uneducated landlords that just aren’t sure what their responsibilities are through to individuals who knowingly and willingly flout the rules.

Stuart added: “Regardless of definition what always needs to be the priority is it’s the people that we need to remember not the properties. It’s our most basic need to have somewhere safe, secure and healthy to live with our family and everyone at the event was supporting that view and it was nice to see.”

“The final thing to mention from the day was that sharing was one of the key messages coming from the people I spoke to and on a wider note it is becoming increasingly so for public sector organisations. Whether it’s sharing information, resources or costs to make it easier to educate landlords that want to do the right thing or sharing knowledge and resources to find and deal with those individuals that willingly flout the rules, sharing is fast becoming a powerful tool in effecting change.”
