Prosecutions of ‘rogue landlords’ between January 2015 and July 2022

We're waiting for Oliver Murphy to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear FOI Team,

I write under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act to request data relating to the number of ‘rogue landlords’ successful prosecuted between January 2015 and July 2022.

In the context of this request, the term ‘rogue landlord’ is defined as a landlord who ‘knowingly flouts their obligations by renting our unsafe and substandard accommodation to tenants, many of whom may be vulnerable.'

As part of this, I would like the information broken down into the following:

i) The number of rogue landlords not complying with safety regulations identified by this authority between January 2016 and July 2022;

ii) Of this amount, the number of rogue landlords not complying with safety regulations that were successfully prosecuted during the requested time frame;

iii) Of the total amount, the number of rogue landlords not complying with safety regulations that were unsuccessfully prosecuted during the requested time frame;

iv) Of the total amount, how many rogue landlords not complying with safety regulations that have been punished via other means, e.g. fines.

Please present the information in Excel format.

Yours faithfully,

Oliver Murphy

Dear Oliver Murphy
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
I am writing to ask you to clarify your request.  This is because we are
not certain that we have understood your request correctly, and we need
further details from you in order to identify and locate any information
we might hold.

The officer looking at your request has asked:
 
What regulations are we being asked to provide information against - the
Regulated Reform Fire Safety Order or stated Fire Regulations?  I suspect
that most of this will fall with the District & borough Council housing
teams, as it will more likely come under the Housing Act.
 
 
Therefore, I should be grateful if you would confirm whether you request
relates to the Regulated Reform Fire Safety Order or stated Fire
Regulations, as outlined above? 
 
 
Please note - If your request relates to actions taken under the Housing
Act you will need to contact the local District and Borough Councils
directly, as they act as the Housing Authorities within Warwickshire. 
 
Contact details for these councils are available via their respective
websites:

I will not be able to take this matter further without this extra
information from you, please let me know by 20th December 2022.  If I do
not hear from you within the timeframe provided, I shall take it that you
