I cannot see how this will do anything to prevent fly tipping or anti social behaviour. There is adequate legislation to tackle these problems, the council chooses not to do anything about them. If rogue landlords do this, the evidence from other areas eg Liverpool, Peterborough, is that they will continue to do so and won't pay the license fee either. If the council cant and dont do anything about fly tipping and anti social behaviour,other than blame landlords then why are they going to be better at catching unlicensed landlords. Responsible landlords will comply or give up, but the cost will be passed on to tenants, so rents will go up and rented accommodation will be even more scarce, as is the case in Peterborough where the council are having to house people in B&Bs because of the lack of rented housing. This is just another ill considered attempt to raise money, that will ultimately do the opposite long term.
