Gravesham Council Warns Landlords

Gravesham council is urging landlords of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) to meet their legal responsibilities ahead of planned checks later in the year.  This is ahead of an HMO Amnesty campaign running from 22 January 2024 to 22 March 2024

The council’s private housing team will carry out checks on HMOs to ensure they operate legally and have the necessary documentation.

Landlords must have a valid gas safety record, a five-year electrical installation condition report, a fire detection test certificate, a fire risk assessment, and a Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) certificate to successfully apply for an HMO licence.

The council is offering guidance and advice to help landlords comply with these requirements before enforcement action is taken.
