Atkinson McLeod - January 2015 Newsletter

In our first article this month, we look at a recent case where a landlord has been fined £138,000 after being prosecuted by his local authority for failing to revert six illegally converted bedsits back into a single property.

The West Bromwich building society is in the news. A long-awaited court case over increased tracker rates began last week. We look in more detail in our second article.

In our final article, the think tank, Civitas, has made a bold suggestion that tenants should be given new rights to stay in their home as long as they want. Is this just another ‘radical’ idea or the future direction of the Private Rented Sector?

As ever, if you’ve got any questions or feedback, please call us or drop us a line. Alternatively, just drop into your local branch of Atkinson McLeod.

Best regards,

Giles Atkinson and Dan McLeod
