New property licensing scheme approved
A new property licensing scheme that aims to provide safer, well-managed housing for renters within the east of the borough has been approved by The Secretary of State.
Landlords who let their properties in the east of the borough to a single family or 2 unrelated sharers will now be required to obtain a licence from the Council to legally let the property. This scheme is in addition to the existing borough-wide licensing scheme for houses in multiple occupation (HMO).
Those who apply for an ‘early bird’ Selective Licencing application will benefit from a discounted fee. Landlords will pay £350 per property instead of £600, should they sign up early.
You can find more details on the Selective Property Licensing page.
