Hello, I am sure this has been brought up before, but I am new to Property 118. I have been informed that I have to have a selective license, when I asked the council about it, they said it was to make sure the property was up to standard and to help with ASBOs.
I was taken aback as my property is not yet 20 years old, and the gentleman I spoke to was surprised, but said it was because it backed onto a certain area.
I also said why should I be involved with ASBOs as my tenants are vetted and had been in the house for years! I then found out that the council and housing association do not have to pay for a license. This I find hard to believe as the council have bought some properties on my road, so I have to pay but they don’t.
Can anyone out there help or advise me, as I feel that I am by myself, and it seems wrong, that I have to pay, whereas, someone else with the same property on the same road doesn’t. I have now received an email from the council, giving me 14 days to pay or go to court.
