Nottingham to use data modelling to target 'rogue' landlords

The council is lacking a common sense approach to finding rogue landlords. All they need to do is -

1. Cross reference Land Registry records with council tax accounts to reveal which properties are owner occupied or tenanted.
2. Carry out street by street inspections to see what property look in a bad state.

But oh no that would be far too simple, lets in fact set up a huge new department and introduce -

1. Selective Licensing. Do new build city center flats really need a licence? Get real Nottingham Council.
2. Start over complicating matters using 'data modelling' to identify problem areas. That'll scare the rogue landlords!

Clearly the council is populated by desk bound bureaucrats who are in reality fearful of conducting street by street inspections or having to confront rogue landlords in person. Better to set up a selective licensing department teamed by 'processing officers' who will tardily send out draconian emails to all the good landlords! And all these good landlords who make minor mistake filling out their applications forms...well they must also be ROGUE!... Read More

Nottingham Council - Why do you refuse to work with Good Landlords?

I am another good landlord who has just had a rejected application.

The council state that there is a mortgage on the property. But there is no mortgage as I paid in cash for the leasehold flat.

They are possibly picking up on some obscure technicality of the freehold housing association possibly having a mortgage on the land on which the property is located. But this is nothing to do with me?!?

Of course I can sort of see where this is going as they would like to force me into paying an extra £30 for a new application . This whole situation is very peculiar, and meanwhile how many real rogue landlords will be caught?... Read More
