13-01-2015

Twofour has been commissioned to produce a second series of hit daytime brand, The Housing Enforcers, with the champion of consumer rights, Matt Allwright.

The law says everyone has the right to a safe place to live but the reality is much different for some of the 3.9 million Britons living in private rented accommodation. The Housing Enforcers will see Matt Allwright on the front line, helping the professionals battle some of the problems as he joins the team as a trainee housing officer.

Across the 20 x 45’ series, we’ll see him searching out rogue landlords and tenants, tackling problem properties, dealing with the consequences of nightmare neighbours and coming to the rescue of tenants in need. From pest infestations to missing windows, leaking sewage to overcrowding, Matt will uncover some of the UK’s most shocking living conditions.

Melanie Leach, Chief Executive, Twofour Group, said: “It’s Matt’s immersive approach to this territory that gives Housing Enforcers it’s USP. We’re delighted to be working with him and the BBC again and look forward to helping put right some of the UK’s most shocking yet common housing issues.”

Aisling O’Connor, BBC Commissioning Executive for Daytime said “BBC Daytime was delighted to recommission this successful series which combines Matt’s humane and immersive approach with unflinching pictures and robust consumer journalism. The series shines a much needed light on rental housing conditions in the UK. This is a subject we know our audience cares about.”

The series was commissioned by Aisling O’Connor, BBC Commissioning Executive for Daytime. The executive producers for Twofour are Rachel Innes-Lumsden and Melanie Leach.
