Selective licensing Local Government Committee’s inquiry

Sections 79, 80 and 81 of the Housing Act 2004

The Communities and Local Government Committee’s inquiry into the private rented sector (2012-13) considered the operation of selective licensing and recommended that the Government should bring forward proposals for a reformed approach. In the February 2014 consultation paper, Review of Property Conditions in the Private Rented Sector, the Government criticises borough-wide licensing schemes and expresses a preference for voluntary accreditation. The deadline for responses to the consultation exercise was 28 March 2014.
