It’s been reported that a bid to impose a rental licensing regime on the Channel Island of Jersey - set to be discussed tomorrow - has run into opposition.
ITV News on the island reports that the Jersey Landlords' Association says the proposed scheme is a "concern" to anyone involved in the sector.
An earlier version of the scheme, including a register for landlords, has been amended; the new versions will include inspections to help enforce minimum standards for rental properties, which were approved by the States back in 2018.
Landlords through the JLA have argued that the official proposal remains too bureaucratic and may lead to some owners quitting the sector.
The JLA suggests introducing a registration scheme where all landlords register themselves and their rental properties together with a complaints scheme, where "tenants are empowered to complain" through education and appropriate guidelines.
