Report by Director of Finance & Resources.
1
Under reference to item 3 of the Minute of the meeting of this Board held on 18 August 2021, there was submitted a report by the Director of Finance & Resources providing an update in relation to applications for landlord registration refused by officers under delegated powers.

The report intimated that on 18 August 2021, the Board recommended that the Scheme of Delegated Functions be amended to include a delegation to officers to refuse applications for landlord registration where the requirements set out in regulations made under the Antisocial Behaviour etc. (Scotland) Act 2004 were not met and that regular reports be submitted to this Board detailing the applications refused.

The report advised that 34 applications for landlord registration had been refused by officers due to landlords’ failure to confirm full compliance with their legal responsibilities. It was noted that three of these applications were by landlords seeking registration for the first time with the remainder applying to renew a previous landlord registration. Further, that since refusal, three landlords had addressed their previous outstanding compliance issues and had now reapplied for registration.

DECIDED: That the report be noted.

The report also set out the preparatory work required to implement the licensing scheme and the main issues the Council required to consider in relation to the Licensing Order.
