Coventry City Council have a new regulatory enforcement officer and are currently targeting HMO’s. Their main aim is to improve housing standards within the HMO sector.
It is vital you know that even if you have a current licence for your HMO you still need to adhere to the ‘Management of houses in Multiple Occupation Regulations (2006)’, the 29 categories within the HHSRS scheme apply, as well as the ‘Regulatory Reform (Fire safety) Order 2005’ as a licensed HMO.
Coventry City Council is actively recruiting up to 80% more HMO Enforcement officers to tackle this exact scenario. We specialise in HMO fire risk assessments for landlords and are based in Coventry, and therefore understand local lawful policy that applies to your HMO.
