Selective Licensing Scheme 'Additional Powers' Ruled Illegal By Court of Appeal

Reply to the comment left by Mike at 22/02/2018 - 17:14
Well said Mike, I like the use of the word "thuggery". And they call our country "a progressive and forward thinking country" I have asked the RLA & NLA many times to start national shame campaigns against our Government and City councils. I have even suggested that they start training courses about how to fight the City councils through the use of authoritative formal complaints and how and when legal action would work. Britain likes to call Russia & China for their poor human rights record but what about the poor human rights record to us? Selective discrimination against certain landlords with retroactive taxation, a capital gains tax system that is now taxed differently for sole trader landlords only. The capital gains tax is yet again a retroactive tax on the higher rate sole trader landlord.
If we ever needed proof that we do not live in a democracy I think that has now been clearly established!

Where am I going wrong!... Read More

HMO COUNCIL TAX being changed on each room!

A silver lining could be that if they now charge council tax on each room then by default these rooms are now being classed by the council as separate units/flats and as such you can apply to get separate property leases drawn up by your solicitor AND SELL THEM EACH INDIVIDUALLY! You would never get planning for this normally but by default how can they refuse you.... Read More

Agent fees ban consultation confirmed with ARLA calling the policy shambolic

My God, So they are talking about wanting to put a cap on the value of a tenancy deposit! The maximum deposit we can take at present is 2 months rents otherwise it can be classed as a premium and give the tenant a different set of rights. I was only thinking yesterday that the landlord associations need to be challenging this maximum 2 month value so that we can perhaps charge 3 months rent as the deposit to give us a fighting chance of covering debts when we make a claim on the deposit.
What the hell is going on with the Government, are they trying to make slaves out of the landlord?... Read More
