The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has launched the Greater London Authority’s (GLA’s) Rogue Landlord and Agent Checker

The GLA has become the first authority to launch a database of ‘rogue’ landlords and agents, this is ahead of the expected national database announced in the 2016 Housing and Planning Act

Like the national scheme the GLA database will not be available to members of the public.  The London scheme will allow all London Authorities and the Fire Brigade to share information about landlords and agents who have fallen foul of the law.

Currently records from ten London boroughs and the London Fire Brigade were published on the database. The ten London boroughs rolling out the database at this stage are: Brent, Camden, Greenwich, Islington, Kingston, Newham, Southwark, Sutton, Waltham Forest, and Westminster.
