NLA call for re-think of landlord licensing

The National Landlords Association are using a social media campaign to get councils to re-think the use of selective landlord licensing in parts of England. The NLA are arguing it is both expensive to implement and unfairly punishes law-abiding landlords.

Carolyn Uphill, chairman of the NLA, said: ‘Selective licensing is a powerful tool at the disposal of local authorities, but it is only one of many available and should only be used when appropriate. Licensing is expensive and has the potential to have a disproportionate impact on the compliant majority who are not at fault while allowing the criminal minority to continue beneath the radar. Councils already have a vast array of existing powers available to them to deal with criminals and we believe that targeted intelligence-led enforcement against rogue operators is a better solution.'
