The private landlord is concerned that one of the council's tenants is selling and distributing drugs from her property and that she could be facing a fine under the new licensing scheme. The council introduced the licensing in one of their attempts to curb antisocial behaviour and to keep housing standards at a reasonable level.
Ms Allen , the landlord, said: “I have no control over who lives in the property, so should I be held responsible for the tenant’s antisocial behaviour? I have been made aware by neighbours that one person who lives there is selling drugs and I notified the council. But when I asked the council what action had been taken, they told me this was confidential.”
The council has not made any comments about this specific case however a spokeswoman did say: “Where a property is let to a public body, the matter of where the management and control of the property lies as part of the leasing agreement will determine who needs to address antisocial behaviour.”
Immigration Act revised 2016 should a landlord or letting agent fail to ensure ALL tenants/occupiers have a righto reside for the duration of the tenancy then they may be fined £3000 for each breach. The Secretary of State may instruct the landlord to remove such persons without the need of a court order by way of reasonable force
