Hi All We have seen a step up in BCC action against over the last 2 weeks or so to people renting out to either 1. 5 individuals on 1 lease in the house where the individuals are organised by the owner. There has been entry warrants signed by magistrates with police, electricians, locksmiths and council enforcement officers going into properties to gather evidence of use, interview tenants, check if there are separate electricity meters, abilities for tenants to restrict others access to their parts of the dwelling etc. have seen this followed up with friendly invitations to take part in a recorded interview. 2. Granny flats/ more than 1 lease. This has been external inspection and then show cause notice. These sort of enforcement actions go on all the time and we obviously don't deal with all of them so it may be a coincidence but either more landlords are coming to us than normal lately or BCC are upping the actions.
