Selective Licensing-Nottingham

The scheme if sanctioned by the Secretary of State for CLG will mean the licensing of 26,250 rental properties across Nottingham City. (In other words every rental property which is not already licensed under HMO licensing)

 

Yesterday, the Executive Board of Nottingham City Council (NCC) announced their intention to conduct a 10 week Selective Licensing consultation from January to March 2017, with the scheme being implemented in February 2018.

In summary, NCC believes the private rented sector suffers from significant deep rooted problems particularly around anti-social behaviour and property disrepair and a citywide selective licensing scheme will complement existing measures in dealing with these issues.

The scheme if sanctioned by the Secretary of State for CLG will mean the licensing of 26,250 rental properties across Nottingham City. (In other words every rental property which is not already licensed under HMO licensing)

Each property licence will cost £600 and the council will employ an additional 74 officers to handle the administration and property inspections under this scheme.
