£45,000 boost for crackdown on rogue landlords in Bradford

BRADFORD Council has been given a cash boost from the Government in its ongoing campaign to rid the city of slum landlords.
The authority has been granted £45,000 by the Department of Communities of Local Government (DCLG) to continue its crackdown on the worst-affected properties, mainly flats above shops and businesses such as takeaways.
As reported in the Telegraph & Argus last month, Bradford was one of 65 local authorities invited to apply for a share of the DCLG funding, which Housing Minister Brandon Lewis said was to be used to "root out cowboys and rogue operators".
A Bradford Council spokesman said the money would be used to fund a "two-pronged approach", which included visiting flats above commercial properties on "key arterial routes" into Bradford, and returning to addresses where landlords had been served with improvement notices which had not been complied with, often when tenants had moved out before work was completed.
The extra funding will enable environmental health officers to extend their visits to include evenings and weekends, in areas such as Leeds Road, Manchester Road, andGreat Horton Road.
iam Jowett, housing standards manager for Bradford Council, said: "We'll need the co-operation of tenants and business owners to allow access to their flats. Where possible, we will write to those concerned before we visit.
