Council Enforcement - YELLING WHAT AN EARTH I WAS PLAYING AT?

Its always best to be very cautious when dealing with the Council. As everyone has already said contact Landlords Licensing and Defence. Also a planning consultant to see if you have adhered to planning. Find out now about possible breaches before planning come back with a potential enforcement notice. Any professional advice is well worth the money as it can escalate quickly. Hope it works out well.... Read More

Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?

We have a few Victorian terraced properties some of which have been converted from back to brick . The conversions all had the same spec with insulation etc but the EPC's varied between B and D. The unconverted Victorian properties vary between D and E. I have spoken to a few energy assessors. Apparently one of the quickest ways to get more points quickly is to use solar panels. If you have no cavity walls, you can also line from the inside and do underneath the floors which is obviously going to be very expensive and disruptive.
To get a C rating for an older property is the energy assessors told me "very difficult and in some cases almost impossible"

Council tax per room for HMO in Nottingham!

We did not do en-suites after a bit of research only reading on the internet, a few years ago. It seemed to come down to locks on individual bedroom doors, having none on the doors would mean, one household and shared facilities even one shared bathroom helps or if the tenants share each others bathrooms.

Extension wall built too close?

We have a similar problem currently. We have been advised that the land could be ours due to adverse possession. We are trying to avoid a legal dispute at all costs so have put nothing in writing and trying to sort it amicably. We have also looked at the title deeds downloadable on the government website and the neighbour has had a surveyor round to advise on the lines.

On a separate occasion, in the past, a neighbour with a personal vendetta insisted on a party wall dispute, the consultant was actually very useful as they look at everything objectively and act as the go between, saving any long term legal wrangling.

Hope it gets sorted out.... Read More
