Housing Enforcement Policy

East Cambridgeshire District Council's Environmetal Health Housing Enforcement Policy  explains how we deal with housing enforcement issues that fall under our remit.  We aim to work with occupiers and landlords to improve housing conditions, only using formal action in the more serious of cases where health and safety risks are significant and works required to bring the property up to a decent standard, free from major hazards, are not undertaken.  All enforcement decisions will be fair, balanced and lawful.

Smoke Free Law in Private Rented Properties

If you are a landlord of a property, you must display no smoking signs within any communal areas to comply with the regulations.
