I would just like to gauge some thoughts please on property licensing for buy to let landlords. The council where the majority of my rental properties are have introduced licensing for landlords.
Now in theory I am not against this, as I have seen some of the states of the properties that get let out, as an ex EPC provider, I have been in some truly shocking properties that shouldn’t be let to a dog.
And if licensing improves standards then I am for this, however for my council which is Sefton in Merseyside, as part of the licensing you have to provide the details of your mortgage lender and account number.
I can’t see any reason why the local council needs my mortgage account number at all.
I have no problem complying to property standards, but why should I supply my account details to the local council.
I spoke to my accountant regarding this, and she was in agreement with regard to why would the local council need my mortgage details to provide a licence, it doesn’t make sense, and could be part of a wider link up with HMRC for tax purposes.
Has anyone came across this before with regard to supplying mortgage account details for licensing.
Would love to know your thoughts.
