Mayor launches online database to ‘name and shame’ prosecuted landlords

 20/12/2017 

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has launched a public online database to protect people privately renting homes in the capital. The Rogue Landlord and Agent Checker aims to ‘name and shame’ landlords and letting agents who have been successfully prosecuted or have faced civil enforcement action for housing offences.

Ahead of its launch, records from ten London boroughs (Brent, Camden, Greenwich, Islington, Kingston, Newham, Southwark, Sutton, Waltham Forest, Westminster). The London Fire Brigade have also been published on the database, which means more than 600,000 renters can now check rogue landlords and agents in their area—equivalent to 25% of all renters living across the city.
