My property (one bed flat in a HA block let to a couple) has been involved in a selective licensing scheme. Despite arguments with council that KPIs will not fit (HA block is exempt) they have got the £500 licence fee out of me which I believed was for 5 years. Now, have got the licence through and is just for 3 years. Have challenged them on this and they say it’s because it’s due to the time period the licensing period started (i.e.2015-2020)- is that correct can they do this? I feel cheated enough that i have been included in this scheme let alone now being charged this amount for a lesser time period. Thoughts?
