The Residential Landlords Association is reducing fees for landlords in Liverpool taking advantage of the new co-regulation deal.
The RLA signed the historic agreement with Liverpool City Council last month, offering landlords who are members of the association a 50% reduction on their licence fees.
It is now reducing its £20 registration fee by half – meaning it will cost just £10 per property to sign up.
The online application licence fee costs £400 per property and landlords with more than one property will pay £350 for each additional home. However RLA members who are part of the co-regulation scheme will pay just £200 per property, to recognise that they are already a good landlord.
The scheme, which commits members to providing high standards of housing, is being made available as an alternative to the council’s own licensing scheme.
Landlords in the city will still need to conform to the conditions of the council’s mandatory Landlord Licensing Scheme, which requires them to have a five year licence for each of their rented properties, but will be self-regulating.
Liverpool City Council will be sending out letters regarding the new scheme to landlords next month.
