Atkinson McLeod - March 2015 Newsletter

In our first article this month, we look at recent research by the Halifax showing that over the past two years, average house prices have increased by more than the average employee’s net earnings in almost one in five local authority districts across the UK.

Local councils will no longer have the clout to licence landlords across a whole borough or city after housing minister Brandon Lewis, announced reforms of selective licensing, restricting local decision-making powers. Our second article reviews this announcement in more detail.

In our final article, we look at a recent case concerning a rogue agent who defrauded landlords of £50,000 and now claims he can only repay £3,000. If there was ever an argument to insist your agent was ARLA regulated, this is it!

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,
