As mentioned on a previous thread I got an outrageous fine and increase in license cost from Newham Council, however I paid it and I had to pay £500 for the license and a further £300 fine. Instead of a 5 year license they issued me a 1 year, so now I have to pay £500 every year! It’s going to end up costing me £2,800 to be licenced for 5 years as opposed to £500. It is a HMO license so I also had to adhere to many requirements to change my house.
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 which is why they never asked me for it. So nobody told me this, they even came out and visited the place 6 months ago and said it was fine.
I am tied in with a 5 year HMO mortgage.
In parallel to this Newman Licensing have audited me and have been aggressively chasing information on property inspections etc. and sending me so many threatening letters. I use an agency and all above board so they have all the info they require, I had to call them up and show them the emails I sent before they backed off.
However it is now the planning dept that I am having the issue with and I do not want to let them get away with this, is there anything I can do?
Thanks in Advance.
