Agreement between Barnet and Dex Property Management

Received: 21 August 2022

I note that in the Master Services Agreement between Barnet Council and Dex Property Management, Barnet Council agreed that:

'The Company may grant licences for the purpose of providing the services' (7.2) and 'not at any time to allow any 'Guardians' to take exclusive possession.' (9.11.3.)

Could you please explain why the Council did not give those who rent from DEX, assured shorthold tenancies rather than licences?

I also wish to enquire whether the new Labour authority has any plans to amend these provisions from licences to assured shorthold tenancies.
