Do you believe the ability for councils to introduce a comprehensive landlord licensing scheme should be included in the upcoming white paper on the Private Rented Sector?

As my 2018 London Housing Strategy makes clear, I have been a long-term supporter of private rented sector property licensing, and I believe there is a strong case for every property in London to be licensed. I am calling for powers to grant selective licensing schemes in London to be devolved to me as part of the Government’s Levelling Up agenda, with a view to enabling many more councils in London to use this valuable enforcement tool.
