Stockton Rental Standard


Stockton-On-Tees Borough Council has a clear vision for the private rented housing sector in the Borough - for all private rented properties to be of a high quality and be consistently well managed.

We know the majority of landlords are good landlords and that they are already meeting the standards set. However, there are a few who are either not aware of the requirements or have no intention of raising their property and management standards. The purpose of the Stockton Rental Standard is to provide a quick and easy guide detailing what is expected of all private sector landlords operating within the Borough, whilst helping to ensure privately rented properties are of a consistently high quality.

Additional regulations apply to Houses in Multiple Occupation and for further information on these landlords are advised to call the Private Sector Housing Team on 01642 527797.
