Birmingham is going through a renaissance, seeing tremendous growth and regeneration. The City is hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games. We also have HS2 and significant economic growth agenda in the West Midlands. Birmingham has an estimated 105,000 private rented sector properties. Alongside its regeneration, good quality housing for all is a priority for residents. This fits into the council’s vision of being a great, clean, and green city to live. The Private Rented Service (PRS) regulates the private rented housing sector through property licensing, working with tenants and landlords to prevent harassment and illegal evictions and take action to bring empty properties back into use.
Birmingham is very much on a journey of improvement and we are looking to enhance our Enforcement Team within Private Rented Service. The Team deals with disrepair issues and statutory nuisances. We always give landlords the opportunity to resolve any disrepair issues. However, we always take enforcement action when required.
