Shelter are running a national campaign to tackle the problem of the small minority of private sector landlords who are renting out homes that are in an appalling state of disrepair, and deliberately exploiting vulnerable tenants.
These landlords not only condemn their tenants to living in rundown, unsafe, or overcrowded properties, often severely harming their health and wellbeing, they also blight their local neighbourhoods with increased refuse, sewage, and antisocial behaviour.
The Government recently published comprehensive guidance on how local authorities can use their powers to effectively tackle rogue landlords. Shelter believe that if this guidance is properly enforced by local councils it will help us stamp out rogue landlords and make our communities better places to live.
Call on North East Lincolnshire Council to sign up to Shelter’s Evict Rogue Landlords campaign. You can help too by helping Shelter ensure that enough people lobby the Council Leader in North East Lincolnshireby emailing him.
There are more details on the campaign and how you can help HERE.
