Additional Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and the Continuation of the Scheme
Worcester City Council currently runs an Additional Licencing Scheme for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO). This scheme requires landlords to have a licence for these HMOs and to meet property safety and amenity standards. The current Additional Licencing scheme will expire on 31st August 2020, so we would welcome your views on:
- The impact of the Additional Licensing Scheme;
- Whether Worcester City Council should continue the Additional Licensing Scheme
Your views will form part of the evidence base which the Council will consider before making a decision on whether to continue to declare a further Additional Licensing Scheme.
