special licensing application takes how long?
I applied for and paid for the license to let a house in Oldham in March.
When I contacted the council last week to ask where the application is up to they said it would be "processed in due course". That is nearly 5 months later!
Meanwhile I want to threaten the tenant with eviction but need the license to apply for a possession order. I know I could issue s8 but I have a nice juicy s21 old style in my file...
How long should it take?
Has anyone tried applying for a possession order and merely ticked the license applied for box?
