Just got acknowledgement of my application for selective licensing (not HMO) from London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.
Compliance visit can be Monday-Friday 09:00-17:00.
Tenant required to be there to sign a "compliance form".
I'm available any time.
But tenant will have to take a day off work.
Can they require this without any compensation being offered?
As LBBD claims to have 17,000 private rented properties won't all these extra days off work have a significant economic effect: more than days lost through strikes for instance?
If landlord has not "assisted in facilitating the visit" - does that mean forcing the tenant to attend? - a licence may only be issued for one year rather than five.
500 for five years was bad enough.....500 p.a. is ridiculous.
Does this requirement to attend licensing compliance visits need to be written into tenancy agreements.
Surely it's the landlord/property that is licensed - not the tenant who may well change within the five year currency of the licence.
