Government to regulate council licensing schemes

The Government appears to be showing concern for the potential exploitation of landlords by councils looking to introduce 'selective licensing schemes'.

The drafting of an amendment to the Housing Act 2004 is clearly aimed at restricting the areas where these mandatory selective licensing schemes can be introduced, before anymore councils follow  Liverpool's lead, and introduce city-wide licensing schemes

The new proposed conditions are outlined in the  Selective Licensing of Houses (Additional Conditions) (England) Order 2015

More for the two houses to chew over whilst having a long lunch on the terrace.
