I have just heard about proposals for selective licensing in parts of Beeston and Harehills in Leeds.
I am quite shocked as 12 of my 15 properties fall within the proposed area in Beeston. At £825 per property this would cost me £9,900.
There is a consultation Click Here
Have any other Leeds landlords heard about this?
Have landlords in other areas found that these schemes always go ahead after the consultation period?
We are currently holding a consultation to gather feedback about making certain areas in Beeston and Harehills Selective Licensing areas. We have not yet made any decision about this. To shape our decision, you can take part in our consultation which is open until 31 October.
Locations being considered for Selective Licensing
We are considering parts of Beeston and Harehills as potential areas for Selective Licensing.
What happens next?
Once the consultation is finished, we will gather the feedback and look at the available evidence before making a decision on whether to go ahead or not. No decision will be taken before then. If approved, it is likely that any Selective Licensing scheme would start in Autumn 2019.
Selective Licence fees
The proposed licence would cost £825 per property. If you are a member of the Leeds Rental Standard then you would receive a discount of £150 on your application.
Landlords who let a property without having a licence would be committing an offence, and could face an unlimited fine or a civil penalty of up to £30,000.”
