The National Landlord Register is coming

Reply to the comment left by Mick Roberts at 02/04/2022 - 10:37
That’s correct- currently we are registered and have a landlord licence for the company plus I have to register personally and a separate licence for myself. Then we have mandatory HMO licenses for 5 or more tenant properties plus selective licences for HMOs of 3 person properties plus selective licensing for certain areas of ‘concern’
Welcome to the lunacy of Wales, interestingly since our national body Rent Smart Wales came into existence in 2016 there a fewer landlords and rents have increased by over 25% and quite a few have increased more than that. As standards are higher then so are costs - who pays - the tenants of course!... Read More

The National Landlord Register is coming

When this register comes in I suspect we will end up in the same situation as Welsh landlords who are registered with Rent Smart Wales then also end up with separate HMO licenses for both mandatory and selective licensing areas. It’s ends up as a minefield of licenses , fees and different legislative requirements which eventually increases rents. The smaller landlords will use agents rather than self manage and the larger more corporate landlords will control the market and be far more selective with prospective tenants. With higher standards will come higher prices. Throw rent control into that mix and watch the sector collapse. Personally I will be reducing our exposure as a company to residential letting as the risk reward ratio is decreasing.... Read More

Selective licensing in Southend put on hold?

Similar things are happening here in Cardiiff, one of our additional licensing areas has been postponed for at least 12 months- very little in the way of announcements or information particularly as Rent Smart Wales are usually happy to overload us with our legal obligations.
I fully empathise with having time wasted.
I suspect the official application to reintroduce another 5 years was forgotten due to most of our public servants are still working from home! ( an oxy moron if ever I heard one!)... Read More

Welsh government to encourage PRS to lease to local authorities to prevent homelessness

This is the same Welsh Government that is getting into bed with the anti private landlord party that is Plaid Cymru who are proposing further taxes on 2nd homes and rent controls. Why would we trust the local authority to get into a business partnership with?... Read More

Tenants - It's getting worse unless you see both sides and write your MP

The very worrying part of this is that the implementation of the section 24 interest relief removal was actually a Green Party policy that the then chancellor George Osbourne stole and used it as conservative policy. This will be the easiest tax to introduce and personally it would be the final straw for us. Sunak must have thought this was music to his ears, but unfortunately the only ones to suffer will be the tenants.... Read More
