Selective Licencing - 1 room is 10cm too small?

As I understand it the 6.51 m is not something they can take a view on. 20% of our portfolio had rooms too small so we simply evicted everybody and sold the properties off. Sad because the main loser as always with legislation like this that hasn’t been thought about is always the tenant. On another property we have in Southwark we had no living room so the requirement was 10 m for a single person minimum. I took them to tribunal because one of them was 8.51 m. Before the tribunal we had a mediation meeting and I told them that they would lose because anybody with an ounce of common sense would not say that this perfectly habitable room had to remain empty permanently. After some weeks they decided to give in to me and so I have permission.... Read More

The lowest-paid will suffer most by the Government war on landlords

I agree with so much by excellent people in this site. We had 13 properties, sadly two which were in Southwark, London, who have put in additional licensing in for all HMO properties, (3 people, 2 or more families). Their room sizes meant that one room in each would have to have become permanently empty, having been occupied without void for years, by grateful people who wanted a very low cost room. So we had to sell both and evict all. We are in process of selling another and more will go. A disaster for those who can only afford the cheapest rooms. All part of the misguided belief that everything needs regulating. It is those at the bottom who will find it hardest... Read More
