Extension of licensing continues in Manchester as two new areas are announced

A year after their first licensing consultation and only a month after their second, Manchester City Council have started another Selective Licensing Consultation for areas within Moston and Old Moat. The licensing consultation is running for 10 weeks and finishes on 2nd June 2017.

Selective Licensing applies to all private rented sector houses that are not licensed under HMO licensing. As part of the licence, the holders of the licence will be required to comply with licensing conditions, some of which are mandatorily imposed by the Housing Act, and local licensing conditions from the council itself.

Manchester a running several drop in events for landlords, residents, businesses, and tenants which are detailed in the events section below. We urge our members to attend these events and get their opinions heard by the council.
