Council Licensing scheme - Money maker?

Actually my properties are in Southwark but I watched what was happening in Newham and then Croydon realising it would be similar in Southwark. Virtually neighbours though!... Read More

Erm.... try £750 per property in Croydon! Also if you apply late for the scheme you don't get 5 years, you get the balance up to the end of their 5 year scheme. So if you were 4 years late to apply you would pay the full amount for one year.... Read More

Court refusing CCJ registration upon eviction?

I was shocked to discover that a CCJ for rent arrears does NOT mean that the CCJ is placed on the CCJ register! How can that be? I only found out when my former rogue tenant was constantly moving property and was obtaining these new abodes through estate agents, passing their credit checks. I called the court, and was told they don't routinely register CCJs for rent arrears unless the claimant requests it. I therefore had to write a letter specifically requesting them to register the CCJ, and a few months later (!) it was done. In some ways, in your first quote above, you did request this, but you stated you wanted a "CCJ judgement issued" which it not possible at this stage as you have already won the case. You could try again requesting that the judgement you have already received (quoting ref. nos etc) be placed upon the CCJ register. If this doesn't do the trick then what they are saying is you now need to enforce the judgement already again which could mean escalating it to the High Court and getting the High Court Sheriffs round there to ensure payment. Hope this helps.... Read More

But Experian did this already. They contacted me in January 2016 and discussed it as I was keen to see this go through. However, when the scheme came out it had been contracted to a third party who demanded that all payments went through them before payment to the landlord and it would only be them who could report to Experian for it to go on the tenants credit file. Perhaps the reason was similar to that stated above, that individual landlords would not be able to report on the tenant to Experian as they are not consumer loans.... Read More
