Pickles to end restriction on short-term lets

Posted by Sara Hanrahan on
Interestingly, the restriction on short term lets of private homes in London is set to be lifted following recent announcements by Eric Pickles.

S25 of the Greater London Council (General Powers) Act 1973 has been the bane of many Londoners and not just those living around Wimbledon. However, there is still need to be cautious as the proposed amendments to the Deregulation Bill, which is currently progressing through Parliament, are likely to be heavily caveated to prevent the creation of hotels or hostels.
