    Landlord Registration fees increasing...

    SaL inform me that...
    Landlord registration: fee increase

    Following a public consultation which took place in spring 2018, legislation has been published to increase the fees payable for landlord registration.

    The principal fee will increase from £55 to £65, the property fee from £11 to £15 and the additional fee (payable for late registrations after two reminders have been sent to the landlord by the local authority) from £110 to £130. The new fees apply from 11 June 2019.

    This is the first increase which has taken place since the landlord registration requirement was introduced 13 years ago. From 2020 the above fees will automatically increase on 1 April each year in line with CPI.
    i.e. £65 for each council area plus £15/property for 3 years. So for me, 3 properties, £95 for 3 years registration.

    - and that fees for late application go up from £100 to £130.

    English landlords in mandatory licensing areas may need a wee dram to calm down...

        Hi,

        I own a property in a block of flats. There was a leak in the roof. The Managing Agent insisted that he must obtain approval from 50+% before work could commence.
        My concern is that if 50% is not achieved work would not be carried out.
        There are 13 properties. At the time...

        Hi,
        The property is in Scotland. There is no lease. In accordance with Deed of Conditions each property owner has an equal responsibility to maintain communal parts of the building.
        My problem is the Managing Agent is not accepting that it is his responsibility, to carry out essential maintenance...

        Who is the freeholder?

        They obey the lease. If the lease says the roof must be sorted it must be sorted. Unless the lease says there is a 50% veto threshold (which is most unlikely) there is no legal justification for such a veto.

        Hi,

        I own a property in a development of 109 freehold properties in 6 flats. Each block has a lift. We do have a Management Agent.

        One flat required a replacement door operator. It took quite a while for the agent to contact and get approval from 50+% of the owners per deed...

        Hi,
        Thanks for your comments. Please be advised:
        The property is in Scotland where there is no requirement for a lease.
        1. Find out how much can be spent without the express consent of the lease-holders (flat owners)
        2. Find out if there are ways around it (like a vote at an EGM).
        3. Look at

        Hi,
        I wonder if you can help. I rent a private property in Edinburgh and I moved in last August. When I viewed the property the double glazing units in the bedrooms had blown and I was assured they would be fixed prior to move in. I since moved in and didn’t view the property again and the units...

        Maybe the Scots are getting way to much money. The London FTT has not responded to our urgent critical case correspondence for more than 7 months. In the meantime someone could die given that there are highly lethal building risks involved (like unprotected drops of three stories along communal/public...
