Housing conditions

Service information


The council can give free advice or carry out a survey on a home if concerns have been made about the safety of the residents within a dwelling or the well-being of the people living at an address.

Most issues are resolved without the need to take formal action however the council can take enforcement action if the situation requires immediate action or the landlord/owner has failed to resolve the matter in a reasonable time scale.

In certain circumstances the council has the power to arrange for work to be done and the cost recovered from the owner/landlord.

The council can also restrict the number of people who can live at a property and the council have the power to prohibit the use of a dwelling if deemed necessary.
