Just months following the introduction of Compulsory Letting Licences in Liverpool, Wirral has followed suit.
The scheme will come into effect in four designated parts of the Wirral from today, 1st July 2015. The designated areas will be Birkenhead South; Egerton North; Seacombe Library and Egremont Promenade South.
These areas were identified using research by Wirral Borough Councils performance and public health intelligence team, which identified key areas suffering from low demand i.e. low sales values and high levels of empty homes.
