This consultation has now closed.

Camden Council wants to know what residents, tenants, businesses, as well as landlords and agents in neighbouring boroughs such as Barnet think about their proposals to renew their additional HMO licensing scheme.

In 2015 Camden introduced a borough wide additional licensing scheme for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs). HMOs are shared homes, including house and flat shares, student homes, bedsits and some buildings converted into flats.

A recent review has shown that licensing has helped improve the quality and safety of homes for people living in the private rented sector in Camden.

Renewing the scheme will make sure Camden continues to make homes in the borough safe, well managed and well maintained as set out in their Camden Plan. They will also be able to continue to tackle rogue landlords who own or rent an HMO without a licence.

At the same time, Camden are seeking initial views on whether a selective licensing scheme should be introduced in the future to license all private rented accommodation, not only HMOs.

To find out more about the licensing scheme and to have your say on the proposals visit www.camden.gov.uk/hmoconsult. The survey closes on Sunday 8 March 2020.
