Licensing landlords of privately rented properties

Over the last 20 years, there has been a significant increase in the number of properties in Liverpool that are rented out by private landlords. Liverpool City Council wants to ensure that privately rented properties offer residents a choice of safe, good quality and well managed accommodation. In April 2015 the Council introduced a five-year licensing scheme for privately rented properties, which expired at the end of March 2020. The Council is now considering proposals for a new selective licensing scheme covering part of the city.

You can read more about the proposals for the new scheme in the Council’s consultation documents, which are available here. To give your feedback, please complete this questionnaire by 26th October 2020.

Liverpool City Council has appointed Opinion Research Services (ORS), an independent research company, to manage the questionnaire responses and other consultation feedback. ORS will produce an independent consultation report in which feedback from individual members of the public will be anonymous, but views from organisations may be attributed in full.

All the questions are entirely optional, and any information that you provide in response to this consultation will be processed by ORS in accordance with the latest Data Protection regulations. Information will only be used to inform this consultation and any personal information that could identify you will be kept for no more than 1 year after any decisions have been finalised.
