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