The National Landlords Association (NLA) has backed tougher measures against rogue landlords, saying they "ruin" the reputation of the private rented sector.
Richard Bianco, a member of the NLA's London team, said any moves to help landlords reinvest profits and improve their properties was "welcome".
"Rogue landlords ruin our reputation and we want to drive them out," he added.
