Promoting Improved Standards in the Private Rented Sector: Review of Policy and Practice

In September 2006 the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government (DoEHLG) published Action on Private
Rented Accommodation Standards.  This provided a framework to achieve the commitments in the partnership agreement Towards
2016 that minimum standard regulations in the private rented sector will be updated and effectively enforced. The main features
of the Action Plan involve:

  • promotion
  • information
  • appropriate regulation
  • strategic enforcement.

As part of the Action Plan, a study of measures were undertaken to promote improvement in private rented accommodation standards.
