Last week I hosted a very successful meeting in Southport about the sham that is Liverpool”s Selective License scheme.
Liverpool Council have refused to acknowledge that the Information commissioner stated that some of the conditions within their landlord licensing application form breached the DPA.
In my opinion, Liverpool Council are holding signed forms which they should now return together with an amended form for completion and resubmission.
I also believe their License conditions are flawed and that their failure to issue some licenses despite having had 14 months to process them put Liverpool Council in clear breach of the Housing Act 2004.
I suggest that every Liverpool landlord now demands that Liverpool returns all their signed forms and send them a new one to complete with amendments to the declaration which must be compliant with the Information Commissioners warning letter to them in respect of breaches in the Data Protection Act.
I also ask all landlords across the UK to email the Communities Department to demand that they urgently intervene to review the serious flaws in the landlord licensing scheme being operarated by Liverpool Council. This request is to all landlords, those in Liverpool and those who may consider investingin the city.
Please send your mails to firstname.lastname@example.org
The issue today is in Liverpool but it could be your issue and in your area tomorrow. Let us show these arrogant bullying Councils that we will not tolerate their law breaking or worse their flawed licensing schemes which would so easily result in being prosecuted despite having complied with the law to the best of our ability.
