Become a smarter Landlord –
Your local council will have regulatory enforcement officers and are proactively 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 ongoing management within the ‘Management of houses in Multiple Occupation Regulations (2006)’, as well as the 29 categories within the HHSRS scheme apply, and the ‘Regulatory Reform (Fire safety) Order 2005’ as a licensed HMO.
To ensure tenant safety, most councils will require a fire risk assessment to be carried out within the property. We specialise in HMO fire risk assessments for landlords, and therefore understand lawful policy that applies to your HMO.
