Landlords will be made to pay

Landlords in the South West ward of Gainsborough at last will be held to account and made to pay for letting out houses to drug addicts, criminals and layabouts.

A huge thank you has to be made to WLDC officers for all the hard work that has gone into the Housing Enforcement Policy, the councillors who have supported it and all the residents who have campaigned for landlords to be made to clear up their properties and rent them to decent people that they wouldn’t mind sharing their own home with.

I can’t imagine they’d want visitors throwing bricks through their windows and then to board it up for months afterwards whilst still taking rent money.

If they think that is an acceptable standard to work to then they are not fit to be landlords and deserve all the fines that WLDC give them.
