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.

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.

Enforcement standards

The Coronavirus Act 2020 and its Associated regulations are also in force. This relates to a wide range of matters associated with the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Government is asking everyone to do all they can to help stop coronavirus spreading and has published advice on maintaining strict separation from others wherever possible during this unprecedented time. You can see the latest Government guidance on Coronavirus

Pre inspection Questionnaire

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

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 or posted to Dudley MBC, Housing Enforcement Team, Harbour Buildings, Waterfront West, Brierley Hill DY5 1LN.
