Private rented sector 

Publication date: 
Wednesday 15 November 2023

This Freedom of Information request is for the attention of the council officers and department that oversees the private rented sector for the council. 

The Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, the Rt Hon Michael Gove has now received your initial response to his letter requesting the council’s activity to address damp and mould in the private rented sector following the tragic death of Awaab Ishak in Rochdale. 

We understand that the council would now have submitted their full response to the Secretary of State by the 27th January deadline:
The NRLA therefore requests a copy of the full response concerning the private rented sector sent by this local authority to the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. 

We understand that the full response took the format of an online questionnaire that the council submitted to the department directly.
