Selective licensing report Nottingham did not want you to see

Sorry .... my posts keep posting before I am finished drafting and correcting. We would favour an agreed national accreditation scheme for landlords and a property MOT with centrally held digital records.
Lets see what sort of government we end up with tomorrow.

Selective licensing report Nottingham did not want you to see

... after our protest.
The properties are both managed now by a national accredited agency. I have just received a communication from the agents saying that the Council have advised them that they are not permitted to act as our agents unless we have a licence in place (we do not, for the many reasons you have highlighted and we regard this as a scam). The agency is suggesting charging us a fee to help get the necessary licence. We have just done a £10,000 refurb. on the 2 bed flat, and spent similar amounts on the one bed in past years. Both properties are a very good standard for which the agents are in a position to vouch.
We have written to the agents , reminding them of their increased fees to us since the T.F.A. and asked them to let us know where we now stand with them. We are not inclined to apply for the licence fee, because we disagree with it. We are not rogues. All you can say about those who have paid and moan, against those who have not paid and protest, is that neither group are not the ones they should be after. we hope to remain in business, but boy is it a struggle. Still working on mitigation of section 24 and have sold 2 properties.... Read More

"Housing is our top domestic priority – the challenge of a generation"

Recognition of the GOOD WILL OF THE PEOPLE. Shameful that for decades successive governments have taken this for granted and abused the humanity which underpins it.
They have displayed lack of humanity and broad brush stroke accountancy, demonstrated lack of understanding, failed to consult with those that know and care, with no regard to the losers in their flawed policy making. Some of those losers have recently been targeted by design.
What waffle?... Read More

Shelter ask for Landlords views

Having revisited after this string took off on a tangent and caught up, thank goodness for property 118.
For those who know Kate Faulkner do visit her web site.

She speaks sense and touches on these issues independently of this forum's healthy and lively debate. Any progress will require balance.
