An Analysis Into The Impact Of HMO Legislation (2008)

Ref: build0007

The HMO legislation under the Housing Act is a key piece of legislation controlling the private rented sector, it contains a number of measures that aim to protect the most vulnerable in society from sub standard living arrangements as well as creating a fairer housing market for landlords and tenants of residential property. The HMO legislation under the Housing Act was devised to strengthen the government's drive to meet its 2010 decent homes target. With the increasing numbers of people needing rented accommodation in recent years it is clear that the current legislation concerning aspects of health and safety needed to be revised. The revised housing act came into force in April 2006 with the introduction of much tighter restrictions on HMO’s.
