Can private landlords refuse to let to Housing Benefit claimants?13:36 PM, 14th October 2020

Barking and Dagenham have increased their selective license fee 78% to a massive £900 per property from the 1st September 2019. No early fee discount either! This has got to be the highest charge in the UK to date?
Surely this can not be justified or legal? This is a perfect example of illegal profiteering by money grabbing councils.
Where are the RLA and NLA in this? I’ve not heard anything from them regarding this outrage.
No doubt other councils will follow Barking’s lead and dramatically hike their fees as well in the not too distant future!
