Housing Services

Good housing is vital to health and wellbeing.

Housing Standards - what we do:-

  • Investigate concerns about standards in the private rented sector, taking enforcement action as appropriate.
  • Advising landlords on meeting their obligations
  • Advising tenants on renting safely
  • Enforce standards in houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). This includes student accommodation and bedsits to ensure the property meets good standards, is properly managed and complies with fire safety standards.
  • Licensing of houses in multiple occupation
  • Operate a landlord accreditation scheme to improve the physical and management standards in the private rented sector
  • Offer Disabled Facilities Grants through Staffordshire Independent Living Services
  • Work to bring empty homes back into use, including grant aid
  • Inspect houses for immigration purposes.
  • Inspect caravan sites
