Commenting on the decision by Greg Clark, Secretary of State for the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to reject Redbridge Council’s application for a borough-wide landlord licensing scheme, Richard Lambert, CEO at the National Landlords Association (NLA) said:
“The NLA did not believe that Redbridge’s proposals to licence every landlord across the Borough were justified, and we’re reassured that the Secretary of State has reviewed the evidence provided by the Council and come to the same conclusion.
“We support the use of landlord licensing where a strong case for its introduction can be evidenced. While there may well still be a case for licensing some parts of the Borough, Mr Clark has concurred that it does not extend to all wards of Redbridge.
“Redbridge Council already has extensive powers to tackle rogue landlords and should now concentrate its time and resource on targeting specific problem areas, so that the majority of law abiding landlords and residents are not faced with footing the bill for a broadbrush scheme that has ultimately been determined as unnecessary.
“We trust that this decision is an indication to local authorities that they will be held to account when proposing new licensing schemes, and that only schemes that can be justified as benefitting local communities will gain approval”.
