Housing Services

Good housing is vital to health and wellbeing, and the housing team has responsibility to maintain and improve 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.
  • 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.
  • Operate a landlord accreditation scheme to improve the physical and management standards in the private rented sector.
  • Offer financial assistance to owner occupiers for essential repairs and adaptations.
  • Work to bring empty homes back into use.
  • Inspect houses for immigration purposes.
  • Inspect caravan sites.
