Landlord’s view – Inspections

Landlord’s argue that It costs the Council only £77 to inspect a house as discovered by a Freedom of Information request, whilst documents show they intend to only inspect 10% of accredited and 50% of non accredited properties. This gives them a surplus £703 (or £403 with accreditation) to deliver the scheme. A typical landlord therefore may question why are the licenses so expensive, especially since not all properties are being inspected? Furthermore, they argue that whilst this isn’t a problem for some tenants, others may not want to be regularly inspected by their landlord.
