Landlords of Peterborough properties who haven’t already signed up to the selective licensing policy which came into effect on 1 September 2016 have been told they have one last chance before they face legal action.

The selective licensing scheme covers nine wards - Central, North, East, Park, Fletton, Bretton North, Stanground Central, Walton and Orton Longueville – and all private landlords with residential property within those areas of the city should have applied for a licence for each of their properties by 1st December 2016.

The cost of the license was £50 for landlords accredited with a nationally recognised organisation, with unaccredited landlords paying £600. But landlords who now apply for a license will be charged £900.

According to a news report, as at 14th January the number of applications is 500 fewer than expected and the council has vowed to take strong action against any landlord who has not signed up to its scheme.

The Peterborough Telegraph
quoted a council spokesman as saying: “We are aware of properties being rented without an application and these landlords have been informed of the need to immediately apply for a licence at the increased cost of £900 … In addition, cases are currently being built to take enforcement action against these landlords as necessary.”

A list of streets and house numbers affected can be found on the Peterborough City Council website
