Private Housing

We provide a range of services to assist landlords, tenants and homeowners.

These services include:

  • Information and advice for Landlords
    • Standards in private rented accommodation and your legal responsibilities.
    • Standards for houses in multiple occupation.
    • Landlord Accreditation.
    • Tenancy and other private sector housing advice.


As a statutory housing authority, NFDC has duties and responsibilities delegated to it by central government relating to the improvement of standards in residential accommodation.  The standards are designed to ensure that accommodation is safe, in reasonable repair, with at least a minimum level of facilities and not overcrowded.

Although we have a number of statutory powers to deal with sub-standard accommodation we try to assist and resolve problems informally wherever possible and the use formal powers as a last resort.
