star this property answer text <p>The Government has no plans to introduce a system of national registration for private landlords. Government is instead focussed on tackling rogue landlords. In April 2018, using powers under the Housing and Planning Act 2016, we introduced a national database of rogue landlords and property agents. We are committed to making this database publicly accessible as soon as parliamentary time allows.</p><p>Moreover, and unlike in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, local housing authorities in England are also able to introduce selective licensing of landlords in targeted areas to tackle specific problems, as long as the statutory requirements are met. We have commissioned an independent review of the effectiveness of selective licencing which is on track to report in the spring 2019.</p> more like this
