Private Rented Housing - landlords and tenants

Housing Enforcement is part of Environmental Health and Trading Standards. Our job is to work with the private rented sector to improve housing conditions for occupying tenants and support landlords to keep their properties in good condition.

The main area of work involves housing that is rented from a private landlord and includes family homes, flats, bedsits, shared houses and hostels.

There are minimum standards that apply to all housing. The aim of these standards is to ensure homes are safe to live in, warm, energy efficient and do not cause harm or illness to the occupiers. The Housing Act 2004 gives powers to Local Housing Authorities (in this area Bedford Borough Council) to enforce these minimum standards.
