Tenants have just moved into my house in Liverpool. The Liverpool landlord licencing scheme finishes at the end of this month. I instructed the agency managing it to apply for a licence for me. After making further enquiries, they are asking me whether I want to pay the fee for the licence to be valid for less than one month or to just not get the licence and save the costs of the fee.
What are the dangers if I don’t get a licence before the scheme expires?
