Improving the private rented sector: A toolkit for councils

This toolkit is one of three publications produced by Housing Quality Network (HQN) for the Local Government Association (LGA) on helping councils and their partners to improve standards in the private rented sector.

Sector-led improvement

The main report focuses principally on the strategic role of councils, consumer regulation, enforcement and new emerging issues. It is supplemented by a case studies report that highlights the challenges and opportunities facing individual councils. Reference to specific case studies and source material is made at the start of each of the eight themes of the checklist.

Although the publications can be used separately, they are intended to form a single comprehensive guide.

Our main report emphasises the principle of a localist approach. By this, we mean that councils and their partners should continue to develop and implement policies that reflect local challenges and opportunities.
