Are DBS checks reasonable for landlord licensing?

Cheshire East Council are now insisting on a basic DBS check also.
Apparently I'm on the run for licking my wife's ice cream choc-ice, in Blackpool, in 1983.

I never knew I was an arch criminal and being chased by Interpol. though.

My application may now be rejected.... we shall see.... Read More

Cheshire East council are also asking for all licensing details and licenses already obtained by any landlord throughout the UK that are applying for a license through them.

I had no idea that it was deemed illegal to do so.... Read More

RLA - It’s time to root out criminal landlords

I am quite honestly sick to death of this organisation virtue signalling, instead of getting on with what it should be doing, which is promoting and campaigning for measures against rogue tenants, who systematically ruin the lives of good, honest, people that only have committed the crime of trying to improve their lives by offering a good, cheap and fair service to their fellow citizens, who are without the means or good fortune to be able to purchase their own homes.

Instead, it keeps jumping on the bandwagon of more beatings for landlords legislation instead of attacking the actual rogues who I doubt even have a gas safety certificate passed in the last 10 years, let alone an EPC, Legionnaires Disease Risk Assessment or electrical safety inspection.

There is already legislation passed to deal with these things, but unless you are on the radar already you can still go unnoticed by the authorities.

Even today, I have been told that one of my small HMO's requires a new standard of smoke detector certificate that is usually, apparently, required also by office blocks and high storey buildings.

Its a 3 bed semi detached in Crewe for gods sake, not Grenfill Towers!

Why is this continuing?

Smallpox, measles, diphtheria risk assessments will probably be next on the list.

The costs of compliance in this industry are multiplying at a phenomenal rate.

Watch this space.... Read More

Changed my mind landlord not moving now?

Tell the current tenant that his notice is final and cannot be revoked as it met the requirements of the prevention from eviction act 1977 part 2, para 5. Ie: it was for at least 4 weeks written notice and was in writing.

That entitled you to advertise and offer a future tenancy to someone else suitable.

The tenants tenancy legally ends at its conclusion. If he has lost his next residency he should consider damages for breach of contract with his future landlord, even if verbal, for loss of his home based on misrepresentation.

What would happen if it were for employment?

Would you take on a disgruntled employee or seek a better one?... Read More

I’m voting UKIP, they don’t hate Landlords and they have a housing strategy, but everyone I know thinks they only talk about the EU.

But basically they are conservatives and labour voters that miss hearing politicians talk any common sense and you can see and hear more on their website or google their last manifesto.

Apparently they are accused of being right wing, (sounds intriguing), check out their blurb and decide for yourself.

Just do yourself a favour and ignore their opponents narrative of name calling and just look, read and decide for yourself, what YOU think!... Read More
