Landlord hit squad launched

A hit squad has been formed to route out unscrupulous slum landlords in Glasgow.

The 'A - team' will be funded for 2 years by a £300,000 grant.

Made up of council staff, police and fire officers, the aim of the pilot scheme is to clear the Govanhill area of Glasgow of the slum landlords that are perceived to be exploiting the influx of immigrants that have swelled the areas population from 10,000 to 16,000 in the last six years.

The team will look to gather information from the local community to find the location of slum properties that might be breaching laws or regulations.

The pilot scheme will be reviewed to see if it is worth rolling out to other deprived areas across the country.
