The government today (Monday) published a consultation response report detailing the comments received in response to the Landlord and Tenant (Private Housing) Bill consultation.
The proposals include creating a centralised register of private sector landlords and that they and their properties meet a set of minimum standards.
The Department of Social Care has also reviewed the voluntary registration scheme as a consequence of comments made throughout consultation process and in applications for the voluntary scheme. As a result the DSC will be making some changes to the wording of the minimum standards and the application form to ensure that it is as clear and simple as possible to complete.
