Public Consultation - Civil Penalties Policy 2018 - Closing date Friday 22nd February 2019

Have your say - we invite your comments on Basildon Council's new draft Civil Penalties Policy 2018. Once formally adopted, the new Civil Penalties Policy will provide the guidelines and powers necessary for Basildon Council to deal with private sector landlords found guilty of committing offences under the terms of the Housing Act 2004.

Basildon Council's Housing Options Service facilitates a periodic Landlord Forum. The Landlord Forum is an ideal opportunity for landlords and anyone interested in letting a property in the borough to:

  • share experiences
  • meet with council officers from Housing Services, Environmental Health Services and the Housing Benefits Team
  • find out about our new 'Property Solutions' package
  • learn about the role Basildon Council can play in support of the private rented sector.

Forums include talks and guest speakers on a variety of relevant subjects with opportunities to ask questions and discuss issues affecting the borough's landlords.

Basildon Council wants to see best possible use made of all available housing throughout the borough and is keen to promote and increase the use of empty private homes as rented accommodation.

The Forum also seeks to promote good practice by spreading awareness of landlord's legal obligations, increasing awareness of changes in legislation and allowing the Council to consult with landlords on new policies/ideas.
