Private Sector Housing: Regulating Conditions examines the provisions of the Housing Act 2004. It provides a complete practical guide to the increased local authority powers, functions and duties when regulating housing in the private rented sector.

This new book is a practical reference tool for local authorities, providing guidance to both specialist practitioners and non-legal professionals such as housing officers, environmental health departments, registered social landlords and social services departments.

  • Examines the powers and duties local authorities hold when regulating the private rented sector in relation to housing unfitness and houses in multiple occupation
  • Clarifies the obligation of landlords in terms of meeting management standards and explains the tests that they will be required to undertake before being granted licences
  • Covers appeals applicable to local authorities and landlords
  • Contains summaries at the beginning of each chapter and proceeds to cover the topics in detail using straightforward text
  • Includes checklists which can be used to aid day-to-day workflow
  • Reproduces key sections of the legislation and related guidance for ease of reference
