Updated additional Benefits for Landlord Accreditation Scheme

Telford & Wrekin Council’s Landlord Accreditation Scheme
This scheme aims to improve standards in the private rented sector.
In response to requests from landlords at the WLA meeting in July, the Council has now agreed that accredited landlords can benefit from accessing the bulk collection service at householder prices (excluding items that are part of renovation works e.g. baths, sinks etc).  This will significantly reduce costs for landlords when tenants leave bulky items at a property.

Meeting with the Council July 10th 7.00 p.m.

We have worked long and tirelessly to re-engage with the local authority and after the fight we had during 2017 we thought that we would never regain the working relationship that we once had, which was hailed as a beacon of example of co-operation between Council and Private Sector working in harmony, at one time. It certainly made life easier for us both at that time. However, things disintegrated and culminated in the Selective Licensing debacle which was a very low point for us all.

10th July meeting

Make a date in your Diary to come along to the Venue on July the 10th 2018.
We have been talking with the Council and they are keen to engage with us on the subject of the 'Better Homes' initiative and the NEW proposed Landlord Accreditation Scheme.
It is vital that we get behind both of the above initiatives to enable the Council to avoid any possible introduction of the dreaded 'Selective Licensing' again.
We look forward to seeing you all there and trust we can count on your support.

proposed last year included a new Telford & Wrekin

October Quarterly Meeting

Our next quarterly meeting will be held on Tuesday October 10th from 7pm at the Oak Tree Centre in Lightmoor. With Universal credit set to be rolled out in full from July we'll have representatives come to discuss this. We'll also cover the changes in legislation to ensure you're all aware of the launch of the Rogues register.

The petition has been submitted!

A huge thank-you for all our members and their campaigning to get the petition ready for submission with over 1245 signatures. We presented at the Telford and Wrekin full council meeting. There can only be 3 public questions at a full council meeting and the WLA were able to get 2 into the docket - One from David Lovegrove who asked the question “It is easy to spend someone else’s money.
