At this meeting I asked how the Council came to the figure of £378 per property with 5 lettings & £25 for additional lettings, which I did not get a reply, so can you now answer this question?
Could you let me know how many rogue, unlicensed or, unregistered properties or landlords you have contacted or viewed in the last 12 months & since the new legislation came in to being?
The fee reflects the costs associated with assessing the application form, inspecting the property and issuing the licence (including the draft and final licence). Details relating to the costs are published on our website: https://www.eden.gov.uk/housing/private-landlords/houses-in-multiple-occupation-hmo/mandatory-hmo-licensing/
There are no registered rogue landlords in the Eden District Council area.
