Deposits

As has been outlined in previous communications, the deposit rules change from 6 April 2012. The most important change is that from that date where a deposit is taken, it must be protected in one of the three Government approved schemes, and the Prescribed Information provided within 30 DAYS. This is an absolute time limit, and failure will mean that no Section 21 Notice can be served. We have heard that there are some unscrupulous agents that have been advising that the legislation is retrospective, and offering, at a fee to help landlords. This is not the case. If anyone comes across such tactics, please advise the office. Landlords need not worry, but please be very much aware of the new rules.

ELA Grand Summer Ball 2012 – Eastern Landlords Association Eastern Landlords Newsletter, landlord's log

I’ve just booked a table for Property118.com for the ELA Grand Summer Ball & ELA Excellence Awards taking place at De Vere Dunston Hall, Norwich on 15th June 2012.

The event looks to be a great networking opportunity and fun too, not the typical Summer Ball sitting around tables, listening to a boring speaker and jigging away to a some out of date DJ’s 70’s record collection after polishing off the cheap wine placed on tables sponsored by people touting for business.

Deposits

Three cheers for competition. A few weeks ago TDS, The Dispute Service, announced Deposit Guard, which at launch undercut the costs charged by My Deposits, and made a push for self-managing landlords, rather than agents. My Deposits have retaliated, by reducing their fees for agents, but not landlords. This may follow, and we shall keep members informed. The third, custodial scheme, used by many, as a free scheme is not affected.

HMO licence fees up 650 percent Latest Articles

In the last year it has become very clear that many Local Authorities are looking very carefully at Private Sector Landlords and the various aspects of licensing.

Some Councils have considered Selective Licensing, a discretionary scheme that allows local authorities to introduce licensing for all privately rented properties, with a charge, in a given area. Others have examined Additional Licensing, which is basically extending Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) licensing to smaller properties. Continue reading HMO licence fees up 650 percent
