Recent appearances

  • Short-Term Letting: Deregulation - Question 19 Oct 2016

    My Lords, since councils lost the powers of licensing short lets last year, is it correct that the only recourse that other residents in a block have in cases of threatening behaviour or damage to the property is to call the police?
