Our work has an impact on the health and protection of residents and we work to remedy inadequate housing conditions.

We also investigate property related statutory nuisances, and carry out immigration inspections.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Our aims during the period of the Coronavirus outbreak in relation to the enforcement of standards in rented properties, how inspections and investigations will be prioritised and carried out, enforcement action and proactive/reactive work. This information is an amendment to the current Private Sector Housing Enforcement Policy.

Up to date information for private tenants or private landlords is available from Shelter.

Advice for landlords regarding gas safety information, please check the Gas Safe Register.

Information for landlords and tenants who are considering home moving is detailed within gov.uk website  

The purpose of this pre inspection screening questionnaire is to determine whether it is appropriate to carry out a visit or inspection of premises.

The safety of our employees, their families, partners, and customer’s families are the Council’s overriding priority. As the coronavirus continues to evolve and spreads globally, the Council are monitoring the situation closely and will periodically update guidance based on the current recommendations provided by Government.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the potential risk of exposure to our workforce and customers, we are conducting a simple screening questionnaire. Your participation is important to help us take precautionary measures to protect everyone during this time. 

Please note: the questionnaire needs to be completed before we will consider visiting you. This can be completed and emailed to housing.enforcement@dudley.gov.uk or posted to Dudley MBC, Housing Enforcement Team, Harbour Buildings, Waterfront West, Brierley Hill DY5 1LN.
