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:
- 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.
- 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.
