Sheffield landlords told to get licence to continue renting out properties

Landlords with properties in certain parts of Sheffield are being reminded they have until November 1 to obtain a licence for every private rented property they control.
All landlords in certain parts of London Road, Abbeydale Road and Chesterfield Road are being urged to apply now for a licence so that they can continue to rent out their properties to tenants.
The new Selective Licensing scheme which comes into effect from November 1 this year, means that landlords must have a licence for every private rented property they control.
Sheffield City Council says the scheme is designed to make sure that landlords can only rent out properties of a satisfactory standard, and that they manage them well.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah and what will happen when the first ‘non-uk resident landlord’ is found to be lacking? I can tell you know, the ‘self-financing’ licensing team will put that one at the bottom of the pile and then go looking for a much easier target e.g. Mr and Mrs Smith who have rented out a house to help pay for Mrs Smith’s care home fees. Guaranteed!!!
