As a member of the RLA I'd like to hear the organisation's view (from one of their senior management team) on the above observations from Mr. Sweeney.
I believe the RLA should be out there fighting their members' corner - not helping local authorities milk us. £500 for a licence plus £250 for an inspection is outrageous. Where I have had inspections - not in Sheffield - they last about 15 minutes - nice money if you can get it.

Larry I can’t help but feel this is little to do with quality or standards in housing but more to do with treating landlords as a cash cow. Given the charge is £250 (OMG) what happens if the tenant is not in or you’re ill? Are they charged £250 again? You can see this becoming a mine field and a bare trap for landlords whom are stuck in traffic as a consequence to Highways repairing pot holes. As for the breaches in law when courts or tribunals have created precedent it makes you wonder about the quality of so called professionals at Councils. Certainly Larry you are the benchmark by which they will be challenged and in which I’ll have your back as we move forward.

I think Everyone on P118 supports the Anti-Licensing campaign, Larry and anyone who objects to the running with Foxes and hounds principle.

professionals at council ! who have you been listening to ? they are not professional in any way shape or form cheers ts

Why do you have to be 2 hours away ? What use is a landlords presence when it is the attendance of a plumber that is required? You should be contactable 24/7 with a principal and secondary contact perhaps. So what about the corporate landlords, does the CEO have to live 2 hours away ?
11:02 AM, 18th September 2018, About 5 years ago
Yes AA. 2 Hours is what they say. It really is quite unbelievable. That is the level of intelligence in the council that hard pressed tax payers are funding. I would very much like to hear from the RLA but perhaps they are more than 2 hours away .

Cheshire East council are also asking for all licensing details and licenses already obtained by any landlord throughout the UK that are applying for a license through them.
I had no idea that it was deemed illegal to do so.
21:56 PM, 18th September 2018, About 5 years ago
I can confirm that I and another Landlord have Reported Sefton Council aka Sefton Plus to the ICO re their tactics demanding information re other properties licensed in other Areas. Sefton have now said they will await the ICO ruling. Sefton have difficulty in explaining how they will keep this information up to date and accurate. They want landlords to assist them remain GDPR compliant. What sheer stupidity. One thing Selective Licensing has done is to expose the extremely low IQ of Council Honchos.

Well I am of the view which ever half- wit floated the idea and whichever submissive minion approved this should be weeded out. They should not be receiving any tax payer s money by way of a salary. In fact they should be nowhere any post of responsibility. This type of behaviour gives credence to government being the employer of last resort and those in post would be unemployable elsewhere. This is not true but is worrying as we have a pretty big government sector. . However no one in a government post should be allowed in post unless you have at least 10 years of private business experience. Not corporate. Individual or SME. Elsewise as is seen common sense and the real world seems to be alien concepts.
I wonder where these people go after work, how they live, what do they see when they look in the mirror , someone intelligent ? adding value ? or proud that they have been repeatedly beaten with a stupid stick all their lives.
Anyone venture a guess?

This is shocking.
So gone are the days when someone who has some spare money & let's forget him/her investing for theirself. They like to bring a house back to use & house someone who otherwise may be homeless, overcrowded etc.
And they wish to use their money, but leave with a reputable agent.
The councils have got all this wrong.
Every week, I'm getting a few Landlords or tenants telling me their Landlords abroad is selling, even though they've both been happy there for years.
Last week was Malaysian Landlord, this week another country I can't remember. What has the tenant or Landlord done wrong?
The Council's answer is get a relative to apply for one. I say Why? What if relative is 80 years old?
These councils have definitely got lots wrong.
And now u telling me 2 hours away.
£250 to cover an inspection? That is shocking too. Ooh I'm suddenly pleased with Nottingham Licensing ha ha.
