Firstly, may I say that I have NO issue with true Selective Licensing for landlords. I have properties in a couple of areas of Liverpool where I would positively welcome it!
My previous item about Liverpool’s Landlord Licensing scheme was published here on 26th May last year during the ‘consultation’ process.
City wide licensing was introduced by Liverpool City Council on 1st April 2015 and so far approximately 34,000 applications have been received from around 7,500 landlords.
A change in the legislation before the election means that now any authority wishing to introduce Selective Licensing for more than 20% of its housing stock must apply to the Secretary of State for approval. Our aim is to challenge the current scheme and have Liverpool re-introduce it under the terms of the new legislation.
A small group of us has got together to take advice regarding a judicial review or alternative action, but we need more people to get involved and sooner rather than later. The problem is reaching those landlords – an up hill struggle as my last posting was viewed only 1,533 times and only 5 people commented.
Those 7,500 landlords who have applied for licenses so far must be out there somewhere – if you are one of them and would like to get involved please contact me using the form below.
