Selective and Additional (HMO)
STANDARDS of management and property
conditions in the private rented sector in parts of Sefton are set to improve
with the introduction of new Selective Licensing and Additional (HMO) licensing
Early in 2017, Sefton Council consulted with residents, private landlords,
businesses and other stakeholders for proposed new licensing schemes, which
would affect private rented homes in designated areas.
The successful consultation looked at proposals to introduce Selective Licensing
across Bootle and Additional (HMO) Licensing across parts of
Seaforth, Waterloo, Brighton-le-Sands and Central Southport.
Results showed that more than 85% of respondents were in favour of the selective
licensing designation and 84% in favour of the 2 additional licensing areas.
Both the Selective and Additional (HMO) Licensing schemes were approved on 7 September
2017, at Cabinet and should start in March 2018.
Many local authorities already operate similar licensing schemes which aim to a
improve standards of management and property conditions in the private rented
sector, which should benefit tenants and improve the communities affected.
Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member Communities and Housing,
said:- "Over the past number of years we have seen a significant increase
in the size of the private rented sector; especially in the areas considered
for the licensing schemes.
Across the borough we recognise the crucial role the private rented sector plays
in creating a strong and sustainable housing market and in meeting the housing
needs of many households now and for the future.
Through the engagement process we consulted with landlords and our communities
and the majority of respondents felt the schemes would have a positive impact in
We will now work on developing both schemes with the view of making these areas
safe and attractive places to live in with the full co-operation of landlords
and their tenants."
