Property licensing debate to be held on Twitter today

A property licensing debate is being held on Twitter this lunchtime at 1pm.

It is being organized by estate agency software supplier VTUK and the consultancy London Property Licensing.

The debate is the first of its kind to take place and will give landlords and agents an opportunity to pose their questions, queries and opinions about licensing to industry specialists.

VTUK and LPL have expressed concern about licensing in the UK and the way various licensing schemes with different rules and costs are being introduced across the country, putting agents and landlords potentially at risk of prosecution.

They are urging property professionals to come forward should they have any questions or just want to voice their opinion about licensing during the debate.

Richard Tacagni, managing director of London Property Licensing, said: “I think this Twitter debate is a great opportunity to raise awareness of property licensing schemes and help landlords and letting agents ensure they are complying with the law.

“Get things wrong and they could face prosecution and a hefty fine, so it’s worth taking a few minutes to check which properties need to be licensed.”

Peter Grant, managing director of VTUK, said: “We urge everyone to follow us @VTUK and get involved using #QuestionTribe.”

The debate will take place on VTUK’s Twitter page at
