The Government has committed to exploring proposals for introducing a landlord register in England as part of a commitment to bring forward reforms to drive improvements in privately rented accommodation and support local authorities to conduct well targeted effective enforcement that drives out criminal landlords.

We have conducted an initial phase of user research with a range of potential users of a register such as private landlords, local authority enforcement officers, letting agents and tenants. We will publish a White Paper in Spring this year that will set out our proposals for reform of the private rented sector.
