In 16 months Nottingham City Council has only managed to issue full licences to fewer than 3% of the applications received and apparently they’ve only done 176 inspections from approximately £9 million+ pounds in.
This equates to over £51,136.00 I repeat FIFTY ONE THOUSAND POUNDS AN INSPECTION.
When Nottingham Aug 2018 said an Inspection cost should be £77.
Someone has worked out that the rate they going, they should take 76 years to get all current houses inspected. If you are a Rogue Landlord, you’re gonna take the chance and not pay your fee as by the time the Council get to you, you probably won’t be here, or in your nursing home not giving a hoot.
Also, I had an evicted gal (Cause of Licensing) go down Council Homeless yesterday. They have to get there at 08:30 with 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 kids & WAIT TILL 2:30PM TO GET A HOTEL TICKET.
Apparently they have to go back every day to see where the hotel is the next night not knowing if they are going to a Derby or Leicester hotel or Mansfield. If they get Nottingham, it’s a bonus. This can be months, then it’s council hostel for a year, then it’s back to Private Rented if you are fortunate and at a more expensive rent that you couldn’t afford last time.
They had 4+ months notice for this one too.
