I am a licence holder in the Liverpool Landlord Licensing Scheme/Scam.
I have received an email from the Council reminding landlords about the new legislation regarding HMO’s. That is fine and councils should be contacting landlords about such matters, however, it was the final paragraph that alarmed me, and I quote:-
‘Anti-social behaviour during Freshers’ Week.
“If you own or manage a property, please remember that under your licence conditions you have a duty to ensure that your tenants do not cause a nuisance to their neighbours.
We can take action if complaints are made to us about nuisance or antisocial behaviour.”
Other than sitting outside the relevant property 24 hours a day, how do the council propose that landlords ‘ensure’ tenants do not act in an anti-social way!
I cannot think of another situation in which the ‘law’ would make someone responsible for the actions of a third party. In fact, would this be legal or is this just another condition ‘thrown in’ by yet another anti landlord authority?
