Landlord licensing scheme fails

Enfield Council has just failed in its first attempt to be the latest local authority to introduce a comprehensive landlord licence for all landlords.

The licensing scheme was kicked out by Judge Mckenna on a technicality over the consultation process following representation from landlord Constantinos Regas.

The Council will be requesting leave to challenge the decision meaning that  a compulsive district wide license in Enfield is still on the cards.

This is another example of the creeping landlord licensing through the back door door as councils see it as a way of raising revenue through a blanket licence for landlords.  The proposed licence for Enfield landlords was to be £500 for each property owned and was originally to commence in April 2015.
