This is why TTRTR is looking off colour lately.


One council has already set its licence fee at £1,100. Any property owner liable for a licence who fails to register for one could be fined up to £20,000.

The cost of the compulsory five-year licences, as well as the work required to bring qualifying properties up to standard, could be ruinous for many smaller landlords, particularly those renting large properties to their student children and their friends.

Mind you,the article does say that the LL might pass the cost on to the tenant.

Landlord tax likely to raise rents for students

A new licensing regime for rented property could push up the cost of owning buy-to-let properties by thousands of pounds and make renting more expensive for students and other low earners.

Yeah,right. :lol:
