Newham Council, Licensing and Planning

Yes the licensing issue is one thing and the audit I believe was done because I missed the deadline for the initial license. I may well get a longer license on renewal but this is in no means set in stone. (according to the council)

However, if I have to convert the home to a single dwelling the above is irrelevant as I would not renew my license. In answer to your statement above Joe, I do have proof as I used an agency for 3 years and have all that info to prove it.... Read More

Thanks for the info Joe.

So If I got my license in May 2104 after article 4 came in I am breaching planning? I have been letting out multiple rooms since 2012 does that count for established use?

Thanks... Read More

Newham Council, Licensing and Planning

Hi Laurie

I have an HMO license for up to 7 people and there are only 3 tenants in the property at the moment. But Newham council introduced article 4 which means they will not be granting planning for anymore HMO excuse is to protect the family dwellings. So they are demanding under the town and county planning act that I remove all locks mattresses and convert it back to a family home with a swingle dwelling.

Why they are going after the people that are already licensed and have paid for the license and adhered to all the rules is beyond me.... Read More

Newham v Me - Landlord Licensing - Advice Sought

Reply to the comment left by "Joe Bloggs" at "14/05/2014 - 09:58":

I have the above problem only ten times worse with Newham Council. I paid the £800, £500 for the license and £300 fine. Instead of a 5 year license they issued me a 1 year, so £500 every year! £2800 as oppose to £500.

That is only the start of it, 10 months later(this week) after changing my property to adhere to the HMO license and changing my mortgage to suit, the planning team came out and said I have to revert the house to a family home. Therefore losing my income and kicking out my tenants! They said although I have a license I also need planning, and said they don't talk to licensing dept. So nobody told me this, they even came out and visited the place 6 months ago!

Just to add insult to injury the girl smiled through the whole discussion and laughed as her and her colleague left my property.

I do not want to let them get away with this, is there anything I can do?

Thanks in Advance..
