Haringey Council launches consultation on new Selective Licensing Scheme

Haringey Council has launched a public consultation on plans to introduce two new Selective Landlord Licensing schemes in the London borough.

The aim of the consultation, which runs until 5 March 2018, is to assess whether the new scheme should be introduced in an effort to improve the condition of private rented homes, reduce anti-social behaviour and support landlords by providing guidance and support.

The proposal is to introduce:


+ A borough wide Additional Licensing Scheme for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO)

+ A Selective Licensing Scheme applying to all private rented properties in 29 defined areas across the borough

The Additional Licensing Scheme would be required by landlords or managing agents of HMOs across the whole borough, with a proposed fee of £208 per unit of accommodation, although a 50% discount would be available for applications made in the first three months of the scheme being introduced.

As far as Selective Licensing is concerned, which is expected to cost oin the region of £500 for five years, the council is proposing the introduction of selective licensing in 29 areas across the borough, in which all privately rented properties will need a licence.
