2021 Private Rented Property Licensing Proposals

Closes 28 Jun 2021

Opened 15 Feb 2021

Overview

banner saying help us improve private rented homes

Have your say about improving rented homes in Southwark.

We need your views on our new property licensing proposals which will improve privately rented properties and your community.

We want to hear from all residents, renters and landlords. Tell us about your experiences of privately rented homes in your area – whether first-hand, or things you have seen.

The survey should take 5 minutes to complete and your views will make a difference. You can read a summary of the proposals in the links below. There is also information that you can read as you go through the consultation.

Consultation activities must be paused in the run up to the Mayoral elections in May, so this consultation has been extended until the 28th June to give you plenty of time to share your views. The supporting documents below have been amended with the new dates, where appropriate.

We are also running workshops and forums to get more information from those in the sector. If you are interested in joining a landlord or tenant/resident group, please email propertylicensing@southwark.gov.uk

Why we are consulting

The questions in this consultation ask about your experiences of private rented housing – whether first hand, or things you have seen in your community. Then we ask for your views on the new scheme proposals. You can read a summary of these below, and there is information that you can read as you go through the consultation as well.
