Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice, including help if you are struggling financially

Housing enforcement policies

Our aim is to raise housing standards in Dorset by working with owners, landlords, letting agents and tenants.

In some situations where serious health and safety concerns exist we may need to take enforcement action to ensure that necessary works are carried out.

It is important for local authorities to have a housing enforcement policy to ensure the consistency of their approach. Tenants and landlords also need to know what to expect from the service.

The policy details how we will regulate standards in private housing and provides a background to the legislation and guidance on which it is based, it also aids clarity if we take formal action.
