Meeting MP about S21 Abolition - What's the latest status?

Reply to the comment left by Dr Rosalind Beck at 05/09/2019 - 21:01
Her response states quote, "on the 21st July we launched a 12 week consultation on the details of our proposals. The Government will collaborate with and listen to tenants, landlords and others in the sector to develop a more effective system that works for everybody. everybody". So the consultation is still running and has yet to be analysed. To say she is going ahead with it is jumping the gun a bit - even if we suspect this will be the result.... Read More

Crowd Justice appeal: Gas Safety Certificate and Section 21

Lets not forget this article launches a fund raising appeal! You can make a pledge via the link in the introduction, a simple process and small amounts are accepted. This has national implications and unless you have hard evidence that you have served a valid gas safe certificate before the tenancy start anyone can be caught out. I would hope the target is reached quite quickly. One thing we don't want is for this clause to migrate into any new legislation that may replace the section 21 form 6a! If left unchallenged I am sure this will be the case.... Read More

6 week DPS backlog now entering its 24th week

Hi Onslow, where are you based? DPS operates out of Bristol which is an area covered by our landlord association. This seems an exceptional case and so on this occasion and in the interest of all landlords, I would be happy to try and get this resolved for you with a face to face meeting with DPS. DPS has a formal complaints process have you followed this? With over 400 members in the Bristol area I doubt I will be ignored. It would be better if you could attend, we can then talk specifics. If, however, there are others in the same position I would be happy to voice concerns more generically. DPS are exhibiting at the Bristol Landlord Expo on 2nd April, if things don't progress we can tackle them there as a back stop. I can be contacted via our website http://www.allwessex.co.uk...

The Licensing of HMOs (Prescribed Description) (England) Order 2018

Yes- I can remember the consultation end of 2016 I think - so not rushed! We were expecting the changes in Nov 2017 the Jan 2018 and then by April 2018. I would have thought the min room size requirement would become statutory at the same time as this Housing Act 2004 announcement. Maybe another Statutory Instrument notice will be released in the next couple of days that addresses this for Housing Act 1985 section 326.... Read More
