Private Rented Housing: Environmental Health

Printer-friendly version

The Environmental Health Officers’ Section is dedicated to improving the living standards of tenants in private rented housing.  We do this through the inspection of private rented properties.  These inspections are carried out on a proactive basis and in response to complaints from members of the public.  This section provides a citywide service, which deals with housing standards for private rented houses.
