SANDWELL MBC PRIVATE RENTED HOMES SELECTIVE LICENSING CONSULTATION

Sandwell_Selective-Licensing1-148x300SANDWELL MBC PRIVATE RENTED HOMES SELECTIVE LICENSING CONSULTATION

Sandwell MBC is considering ways in which to improve a number of neighbourhoods in their borough. One approach being considered is the possibility of introducing a selective licensing scheme for the privately rented homes in six areas within Sandwell. The six areas are in Old Hill, Smethwick , Tipton, Wednesbury, West Bromwich North and West Bromwich South. The scheme, if it is introduced, will apply to all privately rented homes within the proposed areas.

Sandwell Council is consulting with residents, landlords and businesses and other interested parties on this selective licensing proposal.

Sandwell MBC Selective Licensing Consultation Period 
From Monday 3 March 2014 to Monday 12 May 2014

What is Selective Licensing? 
The Housing Act 2004 allows councils to designate an area a “Selective Licensing” area. Selective Licensing means that private landlords who own houses or flats in designated Selective Licensing areas have to obtain a licence in order to operate. If the designation is approved, Selective Licensing can be used along with other initiatives to help regenerate areas by improving the management of the private rented sector housing to reduce anti-social behaviour.
