The local media in Bristol are reporting that landlords in the city are complaining that they face backruptcy if a hugely expensive new licensing scheme is introduced by the council.
Last week we reported that the authority was introducing a five year licence on so-called ‘mini HMOs’ in 12 wards in the centre of the city. This would cost £885 for a licence, a fee which could nearly double for some landlords who do not take advantage of an early-bird offer.
The Bristol Post reports that landlords are organising to fight the proposals.
