According to new research, thousands of criminal landlords are falling off the hook as local councils fail to prosecute them for the poor condition of their properties.

More than two-thirds of local authorities across England have failed to prosecute a single rogue landlord in the past three years, according to figures the National Residential Landlords Association received through freedom of information laws.

In the three years between 2018/2019 and 2020/21, 67 percent had not successfully prosecuted a landlord for criminal offenses in connection with standards or the management of private rental apartments. Another 10 percent had only secured one successful indictment.
