Does private renting in Southwark need to change?

Southwark Council is proposing to license more properties including shared houses to reduce antisocial behaviour and improve the management and conditions of rented homes. The council s proposing to:

  1. Introducing a scheme which requires some landlords to license their property. We propose to do this in particular areas first where there is more antisocial behaviour. This is called selective licensing.
  2. Make all houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) have a licence no matter how small they are. This is called additional licensing.

Please take five minutes to fill in the questionnaire and tell us what you think at http://www.southwark.gov.uk/talkrent to help shape the future of private renting in Southwark #talkrent. This may affect homes that are let by homeowners on council estates too.
