Property118 member Mick Roberts has been fighting the introduction of punitive Selective Licensing rules introduced by Nottingham City Council.
Our Own Property118 member Mick Roberts appears on BBC Radio Nottingham’s Mark Dennison Show. Mick tells it how it is in his own inimitable style and how Selective Licensing is going to directly affect his Benefits Tenants.

Private landlord for 20 years, Mick Roberts, 40, from Hucknall, said he will be forced to pay around £100,000 for the licence and the work needed to meet the council’s criteria.
He told the Post: “If that goes up the tenant’s rent will have to go up. We can’t swallow it.
“The council have gone over the top. And what is stopping them putting the price up again? It is ridiculous. I am thinking that I can’t work in this city anymore.”
Mick has called for any tenants that want to protest in Market Square to let him know and to also comment on the Nottingham Post article opposing the Licensing as the council will listen more to tenants concerns.
Also as a correction Mick is aged 35 not 40.
