Rogues database available for all to see
A report in the Guardian has said the Prime Minister’s spokesman said she intends to make the rogue landlord and letting agent database available to tenants. Which in my view makes a lot of sense otherwise it will be completely pointless tool unless tenants, employers and even professional bodies can’t check against the entries before taking a property, employing an agent or accepting an agent into membership. The database has been under fire over the last few weeks amid reports that no individuals have been added, six months after it was established. With the news that the database will be available strikes yet another blow to both landlords and agents who for years have been dragging down the good names of all those doing the job properly.
