Luton council consider licencing the towns landlords

The towns’ private rented sector is growing year on year and now makes up a significantpart of Luton’s overall housing market. The council state that they are considering taking steps to help improve the standards of living for all tenants ensuring they have a safe warm and affordable home allowing them to live in a sustainable community.

What does this mean for landlords of Luton?

For now this change is only in the consultation phase, however if approved it could mean that every private landlord in Luton (or their appointed managing agent) requires a certificate before they can let out their investment property. A certificate would be required for each individual property that a landlord owns.
