I consider this as extremely harmful, there are regulations in place already which the council are supposed to follow up to ensure that properties are habitable.

This is a pure money-grab, and its not the landlords that are going to pay it, is the tenants.

Many private tenancies are low cost in budget accommodation, the properties are sound but the landlords are a bit "slow" to do repairs etc. The tenants choose these properties as a balance between price and standard, this new scheme reduces choice and increases prices.
