Residential Enforcement Policies Consultation

Closes 11 Oct 2023

Opened 14 Sep 2023


Regulation of the private rented sector in Oxford is important to ensure privately rented homes are safe and managed to a satisfactory standard. Such regulation uses a variety of legislation, whereby there is either a requirement for a local authority to have a written policy or where best practice suggests such policies are in place.

These policies have been developed to assist the Council when making decisions concerning enforcement actions. These actions, if taken, can have a significant impact upon a property owner or manager, therefore it is essential that decisions are consistent and that the policies are published and transparent for service users.

You can find the details of the policies from the bottom of this page.
