Enforcement varies considerably by area and by regulation. For example Houses in Multiple Occupation and tenant deposit schemes are examples where legislation is obviously required to protect tenants. However as enforcement is often inadequate, good landlords invest time and money in compliance whilst bad landlords can ignore it without fear of sanction.

Why is this idea important?

A solution would be to review enforcement standards, and either increase enforcement or reform regulation as a result.
