Anti-social behaviour and vacant properties

How will licensing help with vacant properties?

In the long run, less antisocial behaviour will make your neighbourhood a more attractive place, so more people will move in.

Selective Licensing will link to other projects that tackle empty properties, like the Council’s Empty Homes team who are targeting resources through the empty homes programme which is helping to bring life back to empty properties through refurbishment in your area.

Licensed accredited landlords will have access to services such as property marketing.

Landlords (and owners of properties that are already vacant) will be encouraged to bring their properties back into use; if this does not happen, the Council will use its enforcement powers.

 

Won't bad landlords and tenants go elsewhere?

Properties bought and sold and the movement of tenants will be monitored. If necessary, this information will be passed on to other agencies working with us to tackle antisocial behaviour and we will also use other powers that we have. We will monitor the number of illegal evictions too.
