Notice from West Midlands Police concerning Illegal Drugs

West Midlands Police are dedicated to dealing with the issues that really matter to local people. As part of this they are continuously working to stamp out drug use and drug dealing.

There is no simple solution to illegal drug use, manufacturing or trafficking. However by working together we can ensure that individuals who continue to negatively affect our communities are brought to justice.

It is well known that organised gangs, particularly those involved in drug production, seek to distance themselves from any illegal activity that could lead to them being arrested. A convenient way of doing this is their involvement in rental premises. Whilst seclusion is preferred, clandestine drug labs have been found in virtually all types of rental properties. Any location which allows privacy is suitable for use as an illicit laboratory.

For further guidance and advice please view the letter from West Midlands Police HERE.

WELFARE REFORM AND BENEFIT CHANGES

If you’ve been a landlord for more than a year or two, you will already seen some fairly substantial changes in the area of welfare benefits and in particular the Housing Benefits paid to tenants.

2013 will see the introduction of even more change, affecting not just private tenants but tenants in the social sector with substantial reforms to just about all areas of welfare provision.
