Good (but the EPC is just a standing advisory committee to the City Council). So, step 1.

I do not see any reason at all to not have a Means Test for this public benefit. The limits on means now seem generous enough (IMO!).

Enforcement - I hope this does not become a slippery slope. It is my understanding that some landlords illegally try 'to game' the current restrictions on re-renting, major-maintenance, etc. I am sure there are plenty of 'stories' on this (First Person please), but can anyone cite a City Administrative decision to actually impose a fine ($,$$$) on a landlord who has been found 'in violation' of the current law? And where there is gov. documentation of the fine Actually Being Paid?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
