Council Enforcement - YELLING WHAT AN EARTH I WAS PLAYING AT?

As Des says:
1. If the L has created a S257, then mandatory HMOL no longer applies , BUT the L has made changes to an already licensed S254 HMO so has breached the Licence
2. The S257 wont need Mandatory HMOL licensing - so an application to revoke the HMOL should be made after taking advice- and subject to 3 below, as the planning department may seek reinstatement
3. Whether the change from a S254 HMO to a S257 HMO needs planning is a moot point - in some cases yes, in some cases no- and we have leading Counsels opinion on this. If the change in use is material, then PP would be needed - so there may be planning issues now as well
4. Check whether S257s are covered by Additional HMO Licensing in your area
Please get advice from Des and Phil at LLDL as they have a huge amount of current experience of these matters, and access to the most experienced and leading counsel and so on if needed... Read More

Yes- MEX are likely trying to find a way to get you off a very low interest rate (some were 0.25 + bebr) by selling you the idea of moving your loan away from their UKAR (UK Asset Resolution Limited) book. I know of a case where MEX had a PI outside a BTL and took possession (appointed a receiver) claiming the legitimate tenant was the landlord (so in breach) and sending all letters to the BTL address. The property was legitimately let and the landlord didint receive the letters and was not aware of the covert surveilance and so on.... Read More

Alleged Council Enforcement Officer threatening over the phone?

Listed Buildings ( and the officer responsible for that) has nothing to do with Planning. On the facts if this was an officer from the council they were identified as from conservation or historic - not planning or licensing. Assuming the lender made the right checks, planning permission presumably exists. its still unclear why as described this needs a HMO Licence unless its as additional licensing area.... Read More

Alleged Council Enforcement Officer threatening over the phone?

Why are you licensing this - is additional or selective licensing in place ? This is (as described) a S257 HMO and outside mandatory HMO licensing. As for the listed building matters - id wait for contact from the officer involved- but appears most irregular.... Read More
