February Newsletter

Dear Administrator-N

We would like to confirm that there is no truth in the rumour that the 3 bears have evicted Goldilocks while Section 21 is still available, fearing their home will fall under the Additional Licensing scheme if they allow her to continue to occupy the property. 

Thanks & Regards,

Martin Silman

Having retired Charlotte (did she ever exist, was she just another AI - no, she is real and all of her blogs are still available on our website), we have recruited a local letting agent for our monthly blog. We wanted to call him the angry agent as he always seems angry but apparently, that made him angry - so let me introduce you to 'The Anonymous Agent' - do let us know what you would like us to ask his opinion on next month.

Reminder: We send members a weekly email of properties wanted – I know each week seems to generate even more desperate tenants than the last. Look on it positively, yes, it is dire for tenants but that is not our fault and we can only help as many as we have houses for. However, please do not forward the list to non-members – that helps no one. Prospective tenants know that we are private landlords who self-manage in accordance with the PDPLA Code of Conduct – if others respond to these requests offering properties that are not as well managed, it damages us all.

Portsmouth HMO Licensing Update

There has been much angst over the introduction of Licensing in Portsmouth, both Additional and the transition of Mandatory to the same process. Whilst we continue working to encourage PCC to improve their solution there are obvious restrictions on what we can or should publish, but a short update on the current situation does seem appropriate.

Landlord Insurance - Why?

We have talked about insurance many times, most recently in September last (Better, Best, Boswells - PDPLA News - Portsmouth & District Private Landlords Association)  but an incident this month brought my objectives into clear focus.
