I managed a block of 15 apartments in Wirral which fell into one of the designated selective licensing areas.
Although we had this block up for sale at the time we were advised by the selective licensing department that we would still need to pay in full for the five year license at around £450.00 per property.
All of the properties were 5 star accredited with Wirral council. 6 Months later we sold the block to a company who were going to convert it to cater for assisted living and then sell it on again to a care company.
The works were due to take around 6 months and although the block would be empty for this period they were told that they too would require a 5 year license. As its a company I have worked with before I agreed to continue being the license holder. Works have now been completed and handover takes place next week. At this point the new owners will have to apply for another license.
I requested a refund for the four years which I have overpaid and was refused.
It seems crazy to me that there could potentially have been three full licenses to be paid on these properties within 12 months all covering virtually the same time period.
Has anybody else come across this?
