How you can report an empty property and what we're doing to address them.
Tenants are protected from illegal eviction and harassment by the Protection from Eviction Act (1977). It's vitally important that you feel safe and secure in your home and you should not tolerate threats or harassment from your landlord. There are clear legal processes to follow if your landlord wishes to end your tenancy. If they fail to follow these steps they may be acting illegally and the Housing Enforcement team can intervene.
We have a statutory duty to keep the housing conditions in our area under review with a view to identifying any action that may need to be taken to address housing disrepair issues. In the majority of cases we will seek to form agreements to secure property improvement, however in some circumstances we will use legal enforcement measures to secure improvement if tenants are at risk.

We recognise that most landlords fully understand their obligations to keep electrical installations in repair and good working order and that most already undertake regular electrical safety checks. Regulations are now in force requiring that landlords have the electrical installation at their properties checked at least once every five years.
