From today Local Authorities will be able to issue civil penalty notices up to a maximum of £30,000 per offence as well as being able to apply for rent repayment orders for up to twelve months’ worth of rent.  Tenants will also be able to apply to the Tribunal for rent repayment orders.

We will be liaising with the Cornwall Council’s Private Sector Housing Team on this.

These regulations are just part of the measures to be introduced in the Housing and Planning Act 2016.
