My local authority in Leicester is consulting to introduce a Licence for landlords in certain areas or Citywide for fees of around £1100. The consultation paper is extremely long to fill in and questions of the amount of fees to charged with early bird discounts etc. indicates that they have already decided to introduce this scheme.
I feel that the local authority already has enough legislation and power to improve housing standards and take action against any rogue landlords, anti-social behaviour and other issues without the need for a licence.
I feel for tenants as this would increase their rents with all other household costs increasing, there is a danger of tenants losing their homes due to rent arrears.
Has any member of Property 118 experienced any similar situation and taken any successful challenge to stop this, or am I wasting my time in preventing this from being introduced?
Any suggestions and advice would be welcomed.
