Accused of HMO by Newham - Help

I hope I have avoided a similar scenario with newham, I dont trust them one bit, i have a property also in newham at first rented to 3 people in a 3 bed property all related so i chose a selective licence. over time they moved in 2 unrelated persons in which my agent chose to ignore (now sacked or will be 11th july) when i found out i chose to issue 2 months notice, I informed newham council what was happening just to cover my back in case something cropped up in that 2 months, and they got real pedantic with me telling me that despite the agent keeping it from me it was my responsibility and its down to me. I politely said my goodbyes.

Newham staff have been known to lie in the past, as i found out an told them so and they didnt deny it.
My advice as already mentioned would be to get good legal advice as i beleive Newham council allegedly have issued the most amount of fines to landlords in England

I intend to ditch that property the first opportunity I get, and be done with Newham council who are most definately hostile to private landlords.... Read More

Buy to Let starting out - Families DSS Student HMO?

I wholly agree with your sentiments Gary, I used to call it DSS in the day don't go near, Capitol appreciation i think we have seen the best part of that for several yrs to come now, low inflation isn't going to help either, I have always put rent yield at the top of my priorities and like you say any increase in value is a bonus, for me i took the long term view....
