What next for Selective Licensing?

Due to the tight timescales involved we must act now. Indeed, we are employing a full time ‘Selective Licensing Coordinator’ to assist our current Landlord Clients and any Landlords who wish to instruct us to look after them also.

Now that we know the council requirements and fee structures we shall be contacting our clients (very shortly) with guidance and the services we can provide them. This involves obtaining the licence and retaining it over the next 5 years.

Please keep an eye out for our imminent communications via email, post and social media.
