Are You Still Registered?

Tuesday, 17th June, 2014

North Ayrshire Council's Licensing Team are working hard to ensure that all landlords who rent properties are registered and are "fit and proper" to do so.

Their work has recently focused on investigating expired registrations and as a result of this pro-active work, 252 properties were re-registered in 2013/14. The team is also targeting a small number of landlords with serious criminal convictions and as a result of this a number of Rent Penalty Notices are now in place for properties that they own and let out. These Notices mean that no rent is payable for those tenants in receipt of housing benefit.

Working in partnership with the private rented sector team, Licensing has recently cited two landlords to appear before the Council's Licensing Committee for failing to ensure their properties met minimum standards (and in one case for failing to address tenant's antisocial behaviour). The two landlords were stripped of their registrations and Rent Penalty Notices served on the properties.
