Only unethical landlords will fear more regulation – Star Letter 29/11/2019

Only unethical landlords will fear more regulation – Star Letter 29/11/2019

 

Both comments this week came from the article: Dodgy landlord fined for fourth time over ‘appalling’ conditions.

John Grant Angeletta kicked off the discussion as he said: “Maybe it’s time for legislation requiring all landlords to obtain a local authority license to let?  

“Only the unethical landlord may have something to fear from such regulation.” 

Dave Evans added: “Fourth time? Any landlord found in breach a second time should have the property subject to a compulsory purchase order at its market value in its current state.  

“Probably almost nil in this case. It’s unacceptable to house people in such conditions.”
