Oldham is the latest council to be offering landlord/community consultation about “selective licensing” in some of their wards. They are offering landlords the opportunity to complete a rather loaded questionnaire about what they think….. it can be found here >>> www.oldham.gov.uk/landlordconsultation
Interested parties must respond before 30th September 2014.
The 2004 Housing Act said license fees should not be profitable – O ldham Council think £650 PER PROPERTY is an acceptable fee – even some of the London Boroughs don’t charge that……
Even if you you as a landlord are considering buying in Oldham… please go to the website and complete the questionnaire.
Milton Keynes were stopped from bringing in SL by landlord pressure [linked article] ….. please help do the same with Oldham……
