Want improved accommodation standards?

August 28, 2018

Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council (RCTCBC) are in the process of reviewing their Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO) Licensing Scheme 2014.

What is the Additional Licensing (HMO) Scheme 2014?

On 1st April 2014 the Council introduced a new HMO Licensing Scheme as a way of improving the quality and management of rented accommodation in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Licensing gives the Council the power to require all landlords of HMOs (included in the scheme) to apply for a license and provide details of the management arrangements and the property. This enables the Council to place conditions on the landlord to ensure minimum standards of safety, welfare and management are maintained.

An Additional Licensing Scheme can last for a maximum of 5 years at which point it is reviewed to determine whether it has achieved the desired outcomes and if it should be extended or withdrawn.

How you can help…

RCTCBC wants your feedback on whether the Additional Licensing Scheme has achieved its aim, and if it is extended, whether it will help continue to improve the standards for safety, security, management and quality of rented accommodation in RCT.

The survey takes no more than 2 minutes to complete and your views will help RCTCBC review the effectiveness of the HMO Additional Scheme. Please note, the information you provide in the survey may be used for statistical purposes but all personal details will be anonymous.
