Newham v Me - Landlord Licensing - Advice Sought

1 was that because I fell in the testing area in Manor Park I had to pay £500 for a 2 year license, then had to pay another £500 for a new license, I advised it wasn't my fault you chose my road as a testing area, which they dismissed. So we had to pay more than anyone else.

Also on another property at the start many people were trying to disband this license idea and I went away, once I came back I argued I was away at the time, after court where I lost I had to pay the fees etc.

I spoke to my solicitor recently and he advised still nobody has beaten Newham on this. The Government has backed them, so they cannot lose.

Good luck if you have any winning formula let us know...... Read More

Only if you let your property of course. At he moment nobody is really letting their properties to Newham tenants, but even if you have a private tenant you must pay.... Read More
