  2. If Selective Licensing goes ahead in Stockton, limited PLuSS members may not get the same, or any, discounts on licensing fees

    Received notification of this from House of Commons, therefore my details have been passed on by Stockton! My rental property does not seem to be within the priority areas. Obviously these could be extended in future. I have accordingly applied as the cost of the selective licencing fee would prevent me retaining the property.

    As with the previous response , my properties are not in the identified area. The other suggested licensing scheme would prompt me to sell the properties as the expense is prohibitive. Seems strange to get the contact letter from House of Commons not the local authority as I was registered with them under the previous scheme landlord registration scheme.

    I own property in Norton that comes under SBC . If selective licensing is brought in in any area you can be assured they will then seek to cover the whole borough so it needs to be stopped in all areas.
