Options for introducing further controls on the quality of Houses in Multiple Occupation

At the Housing and Customer Services Working Group meeting on 22 October 2020 members recommended to Cabinet to continue to research and gather further evidence to help establish whether additional House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) licensing or selective licensing of the private rented sector was justified.
This decision was approved by Cabinet on 14 December 2020 and officers instigated the process of procuring the services of a company to undertake the required additional research and provision of a supporting report.

The report provides a summary of the findings from the research undertaken and sets out recommendations for additional controls that could be implemented to manage the quality of houses in multiple occupation.
