Note: If you do have any convictions you are required to declare, details of these should be sent under confidential cover to the Private Sector Housing Team.

Note: A notice under section 189 of the Housing Act 1985 is a repair notice for premises which are unfit for human inhabitation. A notice under section 190 of the 1985 Act is a repair notice for premises which, although fit for human habitation, require substantial repair. A section 189 or 190 notice specifying works to the common parts of a building may be served on a person who is an owner of that part of the building (or the building as a whole) who, in the opinion of the Council serving the notice, ought to carry out the works. Part 1 of the Housing Act 2004 replaces the existing housing fitness standard contained in the Housing Act 1985 with the Housing Health and Safety Rating System.
 
 
 
Note: The proposed licence holder or manager owned or has owned a property which has been subject to a control order under section 379 of the Housing Act 1985(a) in the last 5 years, been subject to an interim management order or final management order or a special interim management order under the Housing Act 2004.
 
 
 
Note: Contravened any provision of any enactment relating to housing or of landlord and tenant law; including any civil proceedings in which judgement was made against the proposed licence holder or manager.

Note: We need your personal data to enable this Council to issue a HMO licence. We may also use it for prevention and detection of fraud. We may share it with local or national organisations such as other Council Departments, other Local Housing Authorities, the Police, Fire Service and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) as part of our joint approach to ensuring that only fit and proper people are licensed to own or manage Houses in Multiple Occupation. Elected members of the Council may have access when considering the application. Data held by this Local Housing Authority in respect of the licensing of HMOs shall be kept in a Register as required by Section 232 of the Housing Act 2004. The information in this Register (with the exception of any convictions) shall be available, upon request, to public inspection. We will keep your personal data safe and secure and will not disclose it to anyone else without your consent, unless we are required by law to do so.
