Private landlords to be forced to join register

Under new Government plans private landlords will have to be registered before letting residential property.

For a £50 registration fee, landlords, developers and buy-to-let investors would be expected to register with a national body before renting out homes.

Press reports suggest that the move is part of Government’s plans to clamp down on the private rental market and drive out rogue landlords.

The reforms are expected to be outlined in a green paper later this month. Details of the scheme are still being negotiated.

Stop the secretisation

I was impressed by the comments from Michael White of Email Mortgages regarding the destruction of advised choice by lenders.
