Posted on 29 May 2019

Hundreds of people could be locked-out of property rental because of new rules coming into effect this summer, according to Vickers & Barrass.

The Tenant Fees Act 2019, which is the Government’s approach to banning letting fees paid by tenants in the private rented sector and capping tenancy deposits, comes into force later this week (1 June).

Changes to Natural England general licenses
Posted on 01 May 2019
News came last week that Natural England had announced that its three general licences for the control of 16 bird species, including corvids and pigeons, were revoked on 25th April 2019 (last Thursday). Previously, the three licences subject to the legal challenge cover 16 bird species, including several members of the crow family (crows, magpies, rooks, jackdaws and jays), feral and wood pigeon and number of invasive non-native species (such as Canada goose).

It is expected that, over time, many situations which were covered by the three general licences will be covered by one of the new licences. Natural England is undertaking new licensing assessments to support lethal control of certain birds in defined situations, such as:
