Wirral best place to live in England

At last, the rest of the UK now acknowledge what we have been saying for years – Wirral is a great place to live, work and bring up a family. With 3 spots in the top 10 in England we should be shouting more about the benefits of the area and not listening to the (mostly) southern types denigrating our peninsula.

Selective Licensing for Landlords in Wirral to be rolled out

Wirral Borough Council are currently in the process of rolling out selective licensing for landlords in certain areas of the Wirral. These licenses have to be purchased and last for 5 years, the council set out certain conditions for the property and the landlord. From the council's site: "The Council would also need to determine if the proposed licence holder was a ‘fit and proper’ person and suitable to manage properties before issuing a licence." The landlord will need to go through costly training to pass for these licenses and also have costly changes made to their properties to get them up to spec.
 
Our sister company Hamilton Square Estates can help, if you transfer the management of your property to them as letting agents, they can act as the "fit and proper" managing agents on your behalf, eliminating the need to go through the training. We can also help make any changes needed to the property through ourselves. We could save you money in the long run and help you through this new legislation set out by the council.
