Welcome to the Portsmouth & District Private Landlords’ Association

The PDPLA is an association of local landlords which aims to represent, educate and inform its members. We meet monthly to learn and share information important to local landlords and we represent our members needs and their concerns to local and national government. There are approximately 4,000 private landlords in Portsmouth and this doubles when you add in the surrounding area – this is a large group of people, yet historically we are an easy target for the press, for regulation and for taxation. We cannot promise to change that, but together, we can try.

Martin Silman,
Chairman, PDPLA

As mentioned then, we were represented at a meeting with the council to discuss options and have subsequently been copied on a number of documents explaining the situation, sent from PCC to the Secretary of State.

    Relevant extracts are included below...

    Selective Licensing Not Debated By PCC

    Before Brexit and Donald Trump, there was a belief in the Western world that politicians strived to do the right thing and made decisions in line with their manifesto to improve the lot of their constituents. That all changed in 2010, when no party won a majority of the seats in Parliament and left with a coalition, the workings of government suddenly became clear.

    The bad news is that Portsmouth appears to be no different, based on the recent attempt to introduce Selective Licensing….

  • Licensing Appeals Update
    Licensing Appeals Update

    As reported at our July member meeting, the PDPLA supported a number of members with appeals against licensing decisions of PCC.  These properties were all approved for HMO licences under Bruce Lomax’s regime but rejected when they requested the same approval for the same number of people under the new Mandatory Licensing regime.

    We won appeals on 3 topics, but lost on one and unfortunately that was the one topic with the most cases.
