To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the response by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth on 15 October 2018 (HL Deb, cols 366–8) regarding the information about their factsheet being "not, of itself, sufficient", what progress they have made in producing further guidance.

Following my engagement on this issue, the Department is reviewing the current factsheet about property guardianship and considering how best this information can be disseminated to property guardians.

We are also undertaking a review of enforcement guidance for local authorities on private rented sector enforcement, including on the enforcement of relevant standards in buildings occupied by property guardians. We expect to publish this guidance by the end of March, and to deliver training for all local authorities in March and April.
