Additional Licensing Scheme for Houses in Multiple Occupation in the County Borough of Wrexham

Why are we doing this?: 

Housing Act 2004  Part 2 enables Local Authorities to designate additional licensing schemes for Houses in Multiple Occupation. Prior to doing so, the Authority must determine if the statutory conditions for introducing such a scheme are met and also undertake a public consultation with relevant stakeholders including Landlords, HMO Licensees, Managing Agents, Residential letting Associations.

What do we want to know?: 

How the current scheme has worked, how it can be improved for the benefit of tenants living in additional HMO licensed properties and neighbouring occupiers. We are also seeking views from those that need to comply with additional HMO licence conditions or are involved with managing these properties – will changing the required standards and licence conditions enable more effective compliance to the benefit of the Landlord/Managing Agent, Tenants and possibly neighbouring occupiers in relation to safer properties with higher standards of accommodation and less anti-social behaviour.

Consultation start date 10 May 2021
Consultation end date 18 July 2021
