Rogue landlords are being warned they could face tough action as South Northants Council backs a national housing campaign.

Last week SNC said they were standing shoulder to shoulder with other local authorities in support of Shelter’s Evict Rogue Landlord campaign.

SNC cabinet member Rupert Fordham said it is not an option for landlords to provide safe, clean and habitable properties, but a given right of tenants to expect them.
