Charnwood Borough Council Publishes New Enforcement Policy

Charnwood Borough Council seeks to ensure that all properties let as residential properties throughout the Borough, including those in Private Ownership, are of good quality and are well managed.

The Policy sets out the way in which the Council intends to secure effective compliance with the relevant legislation whilst minimising the burden to the Council, individuals, organisations, and business, which includes:

  • Housing conditions in the Private Rented Sector and Private Ownership
  • Landlord’s obligations in the Private Rented Sector
  • Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)
  • Empty Homes
  • Mobile Home Sites

The aim of this Policy is to govern the way in which enforcement is undertaken to achieve the following objectives:

  • Good quality, healthy housing for households renting in the Private Sector and to prioritise action to those which present the greatest risks to the Health and Safety of the occupants or their visitors
  • Private Sector Housing is not left empty for an unreasonable amount of time or becomes an eyesore and nuisance to neighbouring homes
  • Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) are safe and well managed, and all relevant Management Regulations are adhered to
  • All Mobile Homes sites are safe and well managed
