star this property answer text <p>This Government is clear that no-one should be criminalised simply for having nowhere to live and sleeping rough. The cross-Government Rough Sleeping Strategy, which was published in August, committed to reviewing homelessness and rough sleeping legislation, including the Vagrancy Act 1824. The Government believes that review of the 1824 Act, rather than immediate wholesale repeal, is the right course of action to ensure the consequences of repeal are fully understood and other options are properly considered.</p><p>For example, the consequences of repeal on the police’s ability to deal with certain street behaviours and the potential impact of offences under alternative legislation, which might have a higher burden of proof and higher penalties than those under the 1824 Act, would be areas of consideration. Policy officials are currently developing the terms of reference for the review.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Every person who dies while they do not have a place to call home is one too many and we have a moral duty to act.</p><p>Whilst we recognise that suitable housing is a key part of the solution, health services have a significant role to play, alongside other public services. My Department is working with the Department of Health and Social Care to ensure that rough sleepers have the health care they need, when they need it. In its Long-Term Plan, the National Health Service will invest up to £30 million extra on meeting the needs of rough sleepers, to ensure that the parts of England most affected by rough sleeping will have better access to specialist homelessness NHS mental health support, integrated with existing outreach services.</p><p> </p><p>We are also ensuring that when a homeless person dies or is seriously injured as a result of abuse or neglect and there is concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult, Safeguarding Adult Reviews take place so that local services can learn lessons from these tragic events to better prevent them from happening in the future.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to reducing homelessness and ending rough sleeping. No one should ever have to sleep rough. That is why we published the cross-government Rough Sleeping Strategy. This sets out an ambitious £100 million package to help people who sleep rough now, but also puts in place the structures that will end rough sleeping once and for all. The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period. In its first year, the Rough Sleeping Initiative provided over 1,750 new bed spaces and 500 staff.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Housing Health and Safety Rating System assesses the health and safety risks in all residential properties. Under the Housing Act 2004, following an Rating System inspection, if a local authority identifies a serious hazard they can take action, including issuing an Improvement Notice or a Hazard Awareness Notice. In extreme circumstances, the local authority may decide to make repairs themselves, or to prohibit that property from being rented out. Where a landlord fails to comply with a statutory notice, this is an offence, and they can be prosecuted by the local authority. From October 2015 we introduced protection for tenants from retaliatory eviction, where they have a legitimate complaint about the condition of the property.</p><p>The Housing and Planning Bill will strengthen local authorities’ ability and incentives to tackle rogue landlords by introducing measures including:</p><ul><li>A database of rogue landlords and property agents convicted of certain offences;</li><li>Banning orders for the most serious and prolific offenders;</li><li>Civil penalties of up to £30,000 as an alternative to prosecution;</li><li>Extension of Rent Repayment Orders to cover illegal eviction, breach of a banning order or failure to comply with a statutory notice;</li><li>A more stringent fit and proper person test for landlords of licensable properties such as Houses in Multiple Occupation.</li></ul><p>My Department also recently announced a further £5 million of funding across 48 local authorities to tackle the worst rogue landlords in their areas.</p>
