Landlord Licensing in Redbridge
An outer London authority, Redbridge Council, has asked Eye to help it publicise its consultation on a proposed property licensing scheme for privately rented homes.
The proposal is for Newham-style blanket licensing across the borough.
HMOs not already subject to mandatory licensing would come under an additional licensing scheme, while all other private rented properties would be included in a selective licensing scheme.
Cllr Muhammed Javed, cabinet member for housing, said: “We want to hear from as many people as possible. Your views are important to us. So please let us know your thoughts before the consultation comes to an end.
“The proposed scheme aims to drive up standards and improve the management of the growing private rented accommodation. We want to make sure all private rented accommodation is of a good standard and anti-social behaviour is reduced.”
