Fast Facts on new licensing plans

The Times in an article today has listed six 'fast facts' on the new licensing plans which are expected to be announced formally in a new Green Paper shortly. They are as follows:

  • A new licence-to-let which is expected to cost landlords £50
  • An independent body which will mediate in disputes between landlords and tenants
  • A government agency which will find new homes for affected tenants
  • Landlords who flout basic accommodation standards to be banning from letting
  • A national watchdog to monitor all lettings agents
  • A lettings register which will name all agents who have signed up to ARLA industry guidelines
It will be interesting to see how correct these are when the green paper is finally published,
