Are the larger landlords associations conflicted?
Only a few weeks ago we heard the Telford and Wrekin Council had abandoned their proposals for Selective Licensing of landlords due to overwhelming feedback advising against it.
Clearly these Councils can be persuaded against the introduction of Selective Licensing if enough people take the time and effort to explain the alternatives. Bournemouth Council are the latest to abandon their Selective Licensing proposals.

It seems the Council were persuaded that Selective Licensing was not appropriate by those who fought against it on this occasion.
All too often, the Associations supposedly representing landlords appear to settle for a special deal for their members who complete their Accreditation Courses.
I have always considered the above to be a conflict of interests.
What do you think?
