David Salusbury, Chairman, NLA, said: "There are now sufficient rules and regulations in place to ensure that the minority of rogue operators in the sector can be dealt with swiftly and effectively.

"The final piece in the jigsaw is encouraging local authorities to use existing and significant powers appropriately instead of introducing more regulation which only penalises good landlords.

"Of course, we are also encouraged that the Shadow Housing Minister is looking forward to working with the NLA."
