A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
The Selective Licensing Scheme in Bounds Green has been approved and is now in place - Selective Property Licensing | Haringey Council.
This new scheme requires landlords who let their properties to a single household or two unrelated sharers to obtain a licence from the council to legally let the property. Those who fail to comply will face enforcement action. If you are a landlord, please contact Haringey Council and register for the scheme. If you are a tenant, please do ask your landlord, if they have registered or make contact with the Haringey team and ask them to follow up with your landlord.
The scheme is in addition to the existing borough-wide licensing scheme for houses in multiple occupation (HMO).
Protecting private renters and ensuring they live in safe and warm homes is a key component of the scheme and Haringey therefore, urge landlords to take maximum responsibility for maintaining effective and appropriate management of their properties.
HMO’s: If you are aware of an HMO that is causing a nuisance or has suddenly popped up, please can you check whether that is licensed. You can search the register here. https://www.haringey.gov.uk/housing/landlords/multiple-occupants/hm...
Please do circulate this as widely as possible and let people know they can go to the local councillor's surgeries if they need support.
