Housing Enforcement Policy
East Cambridgeshire District Council have written a draft Housing Enforcement Policy explaining how we deal with housing enforcement issues by Environmental Services. We aim to work with occupiers and landlords to improve housing conditions using informal routes, by requesting the co-operation of the owner to carry out works required to bring them to a good standard, and will only use formal action when all these routes have been exhausted.
Smoke Free Law in Private Rented Properties
The Smoke Free Law which came into effect at 6:00am on the 1st July 2007 may affect you if you are an owner of a rented property. If you are a landlord of a property, you must display no smoking signs within any communal areas to comply with the regulations.
