ARLA Propertymark comments on banning orders to be introduced this month

David Cox, Chief Executive, ARLA Propertymark comments on banning orders and the database of rogue letting agents and landlords, which will be introduced this month:

“When this legislation was first announced, we were wildly supportive – anything which will help eradicate bad letting agents and landlords has our full support. However, the outcome is disappointing. The database won’t be public, which means no one will be able to see it and therefore letting agents and landlords who are on the list can continue operating with impunity. This appears to be a pointless exercise; if the list were made public – like the equivalent for estate agents – rogue agents and landlords would leave the market for good.”
