A Northampton Landlord sent me this document and asked if I could get it out there. It would be great to get local landlord’s comments, make sure we inform those that do not already know and ask them to contact their Councillors etc.

One of the Landlord Associations has acknowledged they’ve failed Northampton Landlords and should have done a better job.
This Northampton Council Licence fee, is the highest fee in the East Midlands:
“An HMO licence fee of £1,269 – comprising a first payment of £546 for the processing of the licence application and a second payment of £723 for the administration and enforcement of the licensing scheme – will be payable for an HMO that can accommodate up to 5 persons. If an ‘Early Bird Discount’ is appropriate, the size of the second payment will be reduced by £250.”
Page 13 and 14 are shocking.
This is becoming a proper License to print money and Government has to step in at some point.
