Residents

I am a resident in an area where Selective Licensing is being introduced, how will it help me?

Just under 40% of the houses in the designated areas are privately rented. Now that Selective Licensing has been introduced every privately rented property within the area will need to be licensed. Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) already require a licence. All licence holders must be fit and proper persons and licences will have conditions attached to them.

Strict monitoring of the licence conditions will help to improve the house and management conditions of privately rented property, which will lead to an overall environmental and physical improvement of the area. For example, less flytipping, improved street scene, and less anti-social behaviour.
