The National Landlords Association has unveiled a new tool which could help agents and landlords keep across the ever-rising number of licensing schemes and consultations happening across the privare rental sector.
Working with app developer GetRentr, the tool - an app called NLA Licensing 365 - allows users to monitor local licensing schemes in all UK postcodes for up to 16 properties, with alerts sent to them directly if the licensing status in an area changes.
The platform will alert users when new licensing schemes are being consulted on or due to be introduced and, importantly, whether their properties will be affected.
“The number of licensing schemes in England has increased from just over 10 in 2010 to 67 schemes now, with a further 10 currently in consultation, so NLA Licensing 365 has been created to make life easier” says Richard Lambert, chief executive of the National Landlords Association.
“This tool will help ensure you never miss important information about potential new licensing schemes, and that you can be prepared to make your properties meet any new licence requirements. It also allows you to view the licensing requirements for prospective properties, which is beneficial for those looking to expand their portfolios into new areas where they may not be familiar with the local regulations” he continues.
