The Department made £12 million available between 2011 and 2016 to a range of local authorities to help them crack down on rogue landlords. This resulted in more than 5,000 landlords facing further action or prosecution for breaking the law.

Local authorities are responsible for taking enforcement action against rogue landlords. The Department does not hold information on money spent by individual local authorities in undertaking their enforcement activities.
