Gov. to stop blanket landlord licensing schemes

The Government has thankfully stepped in to stop councils from implementing blanket selective licensing schemes.

The Housing Minister, Brandon Lewis MP, has written to all the English local authorities sharing his proposed reforms of Selective Licensing schemes for the private rented sector.

The plans mean that from the 1st April, local authorities will need to seek approval from Secretary of State for any proposed selective licensing scheme that covers an area greater than 20% of their authority, or any scheme involving more than 20% of privately rented properties.
