Readers of Property 118 will be familiar with the catalogue of disasters, data breaches, Illegal licensing conditions etc which have bedeviled the Authority since the introduction of their Landlord licensing scam.
Nothing however could have prepared honest hardworking city landlords for the news yesterday, that the chief executive of LCC had been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and witness tampering.
Unlike Councils who throw the term “criminal landlord” about at will , I will not resort to such histrionics. The reality is that Fitzgerald, has not at this stage been convicted of any crime and remains absolutely innocent until convicted in a court of law. Let the arrest of this chief executive of a local authority be a wake up call for all councils and let these bodies stop using that disgusting term “criminal landlords.
The overwhelming majority of landlords are not criminals, just as the majority of council staff are not criminals and this Head Honcho is not a criminal until proven otherwise, despite having been arrested.
It would now appear that he remains suspended pending the conclusion of the criminal investigation.
I have been getting disturbing reports of Liverpool bullying landlords in to paying full licence fees, despite being entitled to discounts.
The sorry saga never ends with this avaricious Local authority. Good Old Liverpool City Council.
